Theft in the hood

A smashed car window

Recently we have been made aware of some not so nice activities. On Kayburn, off Farlane, a minivan was broken into. The driver’s window was smashed and some food was stolen from the vehicle.

Unfortunately a serious issue is the theft of packages from front porches. Recently a home owner on Trillium posted a clip in which we can see a large package being stolen from his front porch. In brought daylight no less. While amusing to watch, this is becoming a serious issue in the world of on line shopping. See the article and the clip on the Ottawa Citizen here. Sadly, instructions to leave a package in a certain place are not always followed up by the delivery person. (for example ‘deliver at side door’).

About a year ago, a number of cars on Sutton Place were broken into (not all cars were locked) and one car’s rear window was smashed. There is sometimes some suspicious activity (drugs?) going on in the parking lot at our community centre.

Our neighbourhood is generally a very safe neighbourhood, but things happen. Without becoming paranoid, it is always good to keep an eye on what is going on in your street.
