York Regional Police say they’re looking for three suspects after a home invasion in Vaughan last month.

Police said in a news release that on Nov. 26, officers received a report about a home invasion that took place the prior evening around 8:30 p.m. on Thomas Cook Avenue, in the area of Bathurst Street and Lebovic Campus Drive.

The statement said that the homeowner was away on a trip and had a friend checking on her cat.

Her friend said that a female suspect knocked on the door and stated that she had a food delivery.

But when the door was opened, two male suspects forced their way into the home, police said. The suspects allegedly searched the residence and “stole a quantity of items.”
