Crime Tourism in Toronto

Please note, recent media reports are alerting the public to the growing problem of crime tourism, especially from South American countries such as Chile.

Organized crime rings are reportedly flying into Toronto on visitor visas, breaking into homes over the course of several weeks and flying home again. Such criminals can be difficult to catch since they don’t live here. Toronto Police broke up one such crime ring last year in which 14 individuals were arrested. Police tell reporters that this is a growing problem in countries such as Canada, United States and Australia.

In several cases, a suspect dressed in a yellow vest (posing as a telecom or city worker) knocks on the front door with a prepared comment in case someone answers. If nobody answers, the suspect signals others to break in and steal whatever they can in 5-10 minutes. Such incidents tend to be non-violent so as to avoid heavy sentences if the suspects are caught.

Please remain aware of any suspicious activity in your neighbourhood, report it to Police and always ask for ID if someone knocks at your door.

If you have seen or heard anything suspicious, please contact the Police.
If you see a crime in progress, please call 9-1-1 immediately.
