Two teens arrested after tire slashing
Two youths have been arrested in connection with the slashing of dozens of tires in a community north of Toronto, following a month-long investigation by York Regional Police.
The two boys were arrested in Aurora on Sept. 7, after 59 tires were slashed on 33 vehicles at 18 separate addresses between Aug. 3 at approximately 11:30 p.m. and Aug. 4 at approximately 2:30 a.m., police said.
On Aug. 4, officers responded to property damage calls on Wellington Street West, Boulding Drive, Haida Drive, Navan Crescent, Jasper Drive and James Henry Drive.
In a press release issued Monday, York Region Police said two male suspects, aged 14 and 13, have been charged with 34 counts of mischief under $5,000.
Both have been released from custody and are scheduled to appear before the Youth Justice Court of Ontario on Oct. 5.
