Watch above: Why police are warning homeowners on one street in Vaughan. Catherine McDonald reports.
TORONTO – Eighteen of the 34 break-ins or attempted break-ins near one Vaughan intersection since October have been on the same residential street.
The break and enters, or in some cases attempted break and enters, all took place near Clark Avenue West and New Westminster Drive in Vaughan – a primarily residential neighbourhood near Bathurst Street and Steeles Avenue.
Police say most of the residents were on vacation at the time of the attempted break-ins.
The unidentified suspects would force their way into the home in a variety of ways, police said, including forcing doors open and breaking windows.
York Regional Police offered several tips to protect your home from a break and enter.
