Leave car keys by the front door to avoid home invasion, Toronto police officer says | 14 March 2024 | A Toronto police officer suggested that residents leave their car keys by the front door to avoid a home invasion, seemingly to let criminals steal their vehicle if they break in, leave and avoid injuries. The Toronto Police Service issued a statement Wednesday confirming that an officer made the remarks at a recent community meeting. The officer suggested "that people leave the keys to their vehicle in a faraday bag by the front door," the statement said.

In Toronto, home invasions and break-ins for auto thefts rose 400 per cent last year, the Toronto Police Service said.
