York Regional Police uniformed patrol officers have charged two people with thefts from vehicles after a call from a concerned citizen in the City of Vaughan.

On Friday, October 6, 2017, shortly after midnight, York Regional Police received a call from a concerned citizen after they had spotted two suspicious people looking into parked cars in the area of Pine Valley Drive, south of Langstaff Road.
