Rash of car thefts, burglaries

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%.

  1. Another car stolen. 🙁
    Just yesterday in the townhouses near the Superstore; right out of the owner’s driveway sometime overnight. It’s crazy how easily the thieves steal away in the night and leave vehicle owners scratching their heads and facing hours on the phone with insurance and rental car companies the next morning.
