Neighbourhood Watch - Bulletin 11-11-25
There has been a rash of break-ins in our neighbourhood within the last few days. On November 17th, a home in the 200 block of Lincoln Heights was robbed, followed by thefts from two homes in the 2500 block of Regina Avenue on Nov 21 & 24. In each case, electronics, cash and jewellery, among other things, were taken.
