Five cars were stolen in Weston between October 2 and October 8, an unusually high number, when we usually go weeks between auto thefts. Some members of the Weston Neighbours’ group
also reported that a number of unlocked cars have been broken into lately—which is, frustratingly, a long-term and ongoing problem in the neighbourhood.
It’s not all bad news: crimes in Weston are down substantially compared to this time last year across almost every category (and this is despite a secular rise in crime in Toronto). Auto thefts, however, are up 13%, and thefts over $5000 are up 14%.
