Report from Winner’s East Side (this week) – GARAGE BREAK-IN
I just want to let you know about a garage theft here at my home, on Winners Circle. We lost three bikes – one $2700 road bike, and two other expensive bikes. Our garage was locked from the garden (medeco lock no less). We also have a brand new motion sensor security light and a security camera. The thieves obviously saw the bikes through the “windows” on our builder-original door and busted the garage door to get in. They damaged our soffit when they either covered or tried to disable the security camera. My daughter says she heard noise sometime after midnight but assumed it was raccoons because it was garbage night.
We are beside ourselves. I called the police twice to report the incident: once at 5:45 am when I discovered it and again at 11 am when they hadn’t called back. I have yet to speak to someone and get a case number. They said it could take up to 48 hours for a call back. I should also mention that I have lived in this house since 2001 and that I have TWICE filled-out community policing reports to no avail. Our neighbourhood continues to be targeted and there is no police presence.
Report from Boardwalk (last week) – GRAFFITI
We reside in Boardwalk street and have never had any problems. On Thursday morning, I noticed that there was graffiti on the sidewalk as one approaches Queen street. I then noticed that a number of shops located near to the intersection of Queen and Woodbine had also had graffiti applied to their walls. I then met with a friend at the bus stop and he mentioned that one of our neighbours had their garage door vandalised with graffiti. We clearly have a graffiti problem developing, perhaps you could warn the community to be alert for strangers walking about in the area late at night, I estimate that this act of vandalism is being undertaken late at night and into the early morning when there is less traffic (23h00 – 03h00).
