Two men have been charged with Break and Enter following ongoing investigations in the City of Vaughan.

On Friday, Dec. 7, 2018, at approximately 8 p.m., York Regional Police responded to an alarm call at a residence on Deer Run Court in Vaughan. As officers arrived on scene, two male suspects fled the area westbound through the wooded area. Canine was deployed and one of the suspects was arrested.

Officers on scene were able to determine that the suspects cut the power to the residence and had pried open a rear basement window. A large safe had been taken from the home but it was later located unopened in the wooded area behind the residence.

On Thursday, Dec. 13, 2018, the second male suspect was located and placed under arrest. Investigators believe that these two men are responsible for other residential break and enters in the City of Vaughan. The investigation is ongoing.

York Regional Police continues to receive reports of residential break and enters across the region. We want to encourage our citizens to take proactive steps to help keep their home safe. Break and enters are often crimes of opportunity. The more difficult you make it for thieves to break into your home, the more likely it is that they will move along.

Be aware of suspicious people or vehicles in your neighbourhood and call police immediately if you’re concerned.  We will respond to these calls.
