Crime Alert: Vehicle Break-in on Wellesley Street East

Some unfortunate news to report from Wellesley Street East involving a vehicle break-in. The incident occurred at some point between Monday April 4 at 9 p.m. and Tuesday April 5 at 8 a.m. on Wellesley St. East, between Iroquois Lane and Laurier Avenue. The car was parked on the south side of the street, facing eastward. On the morning of April 5, the car’s passenger door was found ajar and entry seems to have been gained by jimmying open the passenger window.

Items from the glove box and arm rest compartment were strewn around the car, but no damage was done to the inside of the vehicle or seats. A little more than $20 in change, a GPS device and Ray Ban sunglasses are missing. Fortunately, other items of value were not taken.

The incident was reported to the police, but the resident kindly wished to alert neighbours.

On a positive note, the damage done to the window (it was just off the track) was repaired by the resident’s auto dealer at no charge.
