Neighbourhood Crime

Neighbourhood Crime

Car Thefts have been on the rise for nearly a year in many residential areas, including Lytton Park. High-end SUVs such as Lexus, Toyota, and Land Rover are especially sought after. Some residents have been victimized by this crime more than once! Toronto Police are encouraging car owners to take extra measures to protect their vehicles, including anti-theft hardware, watching out for neighbours, and reporting suspicious people or vehicles to the police. For detailed tips, see this Public Safety Alert from 53 Division issued September 2021: Police Alert (1)

Toronto Police have also issued a Public Safety Alert in September regarding recent Taxi Scams. The suspects are active in areas of Yonge and Eglinton and Mt Pleasant and Eglinton. One suspect stands on the sidewalk and the other suspect remains in the driver seat of the fake taxi. The suspect on the sidewalk stops the victim, saying that the driver does not accept cash and asks for help. The victim is provided cash, then asked to use their debit card to pay for the taxi fare in exchange. The victim gives his/her card to the driver to make the payment and enters his/her pin code to the fake machine. The driver then swaps the bank card with a similar card and the victims walks away. Later the suspects use the stolen debit card to empty the victim’s bank account in less than 24 hours. If you have been a victim of this scam or have information about the suspects, please report it to Police @ 416-808-2222 or Crime Stoppers @ 1-800-222-TIPS

Bikes are a frequent target of theft in this city. Reports include thieves entering through a gate to steal bikes from a garage or shed located at the end of a driveway or in a backyard. Residents should consider locking their garages and sheds, and possibly securing their bikes even when they are inside a locked garage or shed. Toronto residents can register their bikes with Toronto Police Service (TPS). When a stolen bike is recovered TPS checks the registry. https://bike.torontopolice.on.ca/BicycleRegistry/
