PROFILE WAS AIRED WEEK OF JULY 21-27, 2017
CRIME STOPPERS and DURHAM REGIONAL POLICE are asking for your help to solve a series of mischiefs that have been occurring in Whitby. Since early July, there have been at least 3 incidents of damage to the property and buildings at the Kids Safety Village located on grounds of Sir William Stephenson Public School. Unknown suspects have entered the property by scaling the fence and once inside, they have broken windows, damaged walk signals and traffic lights, and destroyed a scale model of the village and also tried to set it on fire. The Kids’ Safety Village is an integral part of Durham Region focusing on the safety of our children. The Village was made possible because of local businesses, citizens and service clubs. Damage to properties such as this affects everyone in our community. At this time, damage is listed at a minimum of $10 000.
If you have any information about these incidents or know who is responsible, please call Crime Stoppers.
CRIME STOPPERS will pay up to $2000 cash for ANY information that leads to an arrest in this or ANY criminal matter. Callers never need to give their name or testify in court and we do NOT use call display. Remember: CRIME doesn’t pay but Crime Stoppers does.
