Between January 20 and February 3, the Caledon Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) investigated three separate thefts from vehicles. They all occurred to vehicles that were parked near a trail access point while the victims were out for a walk. 

The first incident occurred on January 20, 2021. The victim was parked on Mississauga Road and Cataract Road between the hours of 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. Upon returning from their walk, the victim noticed that the window was broken and a purse was taken. A witness reported seeing a gold older model Honda or Mazda leaving the area at a high rate of speed. It was driven by a male lone occupant, tan complexion, and between the ages of 20 to 30.

On February 2, while parked at Beech Grove Side Road and Porterfield Road between the hours of 3:30 p.m. and 5:10 p.m., a second vehicle was entered by breaking a window. A purse was also taken. The victim reported seeing a suspicious male when first arriving in the area, who was parked in a dark-colored sedan.  The male was by himself in his vehicle. No additional descriptors are available.

The following day on February 2, between 1:25 p.m. and 2:50 p.m. on Willoughby Road and Escarpment Side Road, two additional vehicles were accessed through a window. Two purses were stolen.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information regarding the investigation is asked to contact the Caledon OPP Community Street Crime Unit at 905-584-2241 or toll-free at 1-888-310-1122.

You can also provide information anonymously by contacting Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online at www.peelcrimestoppers.ca. When you contact Crime Stoppers you stay anonymous, you never have to testify, and you could receive a cash reward of up to $2000 upon an arrest.

“A purse is a source of many valuables such as cash, credit cards, gift cards, personal identification cards, and electronic devices,” say Police.
