(As noted by a previous post, there have been an increase in thefts from vehicles both locked and unlocked in the Ward 6 area. In one day 10 vehicles were broken into. Make sure you keep your valuables inside your home, instead of in your car. I was also a victim of this crime recently. The more we do to prevent this, the more they move on. Hopefully Halton Police will find these criminals!)
