A resident of Amelia St. between Schawlow Lane and Prohibition Lane, kindly offered to share details of a theft that took place on the evening of Thursday, September 3.
The thieves ignored a motion-sensing light and broke into a shed by using a crowbar or similar tool, breaking two deadbolts in the process and damaging the shed requiring repairs. Taken were a 3 year old Timberline GT Mountain Bike (pictured below), a Kryptonite bicycle lock, a good stand-up bicycle pump and some leather gardening gloves.
The resident had previously registered the bicycle and has reported the incident to Toronto Police. This is the third break-in that has happened at this house, but on a positive note, a previously stolen (and registered) bicycle was returned to the same resident by the police, 16 months after it was taken!
