My neighbor was verbally abused by the youths that reside at a residence in the neighbourhood. They are of mixed race very scruffy and obviously drug users. Their residence has been reported for unlawful activity in the past. It was suggested that if these men are seen wondering in the neighborhood call the non emergency police number.

Mar 30, 2016: end of 53rd Ave

You can say i prevented 2 crimes from happening.

There are some guys driving around in a black pickup (Ford) dumping garbage on this street. i am convinced they are doing it on Colebrook road as well.

On Tuesday i was walking along 53rd avenue with another resident when a pickup laden with garbage passed us by, near the end of the road. When we started walking towards them, they turned and started to slowly drive away. There was no front license plate number. However there was one at the back. it was KA3078.

This evening (30/03/2016), the guys were back with a truckload full of pallets. Same truck, except there were no licence plates. They were about to start throwing the stuff down when i showed up. i did not confront them but kept looking at them. they slowly went back to the truck and after a couple of minutes, and drove away slowly. later i saw them about halfway along 53 ave. they were doing something. they then drove off.

People, please be vigilant. I did not call the police as it would have taken them too long to arrive (not an emergency).
