“The only thing we saw is probably there was about 10 or 20 police cars coming…. This is a dead road so sometimes people dump garbage,” neighbour Joe Zanatta told Global News.

“So one of the neighbours said something happened at one of the houses but we don’t have any other information.”

Anyone with further information who has not spoken to the police is asked to contact the IHIT Information line at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or by email.
