Crime alert: Vehicle break-in and theft on Parliament Street (photos available)

After the report of two vehicle break-ins on Yen Lane and Salisbury Avenue, we have a report of an incident that took place on March 17, 2017 at 5:40 p.m. on Parliament Street just south of Prospect Street.

A witness to the incident called police using 911 and the owner returned to the vehicle a minute later and found that an Apple iPad had been stolen. Using the “Find my iPad” feature, the owner was able to lock the device and used the location feature to help guide the police to the south west corner of Dundas and Parliament Streets where the device went offline. Police searched the area but weren’t able to locate the person or device but due to the existence of surveillance camera images of the theft as seen below, they believe that they have a good chance of finding the person. The owner wrote to us “maybe he’s the same guy who committed the other crimes in the area too. If so, even if I don’t get my iPad back, at least I would feel I helped stop him from robbing others. Let’s hope so!”.
