Rev. Harry Lehotsky

Our neighborhood is getting better, and part of that is a "zero-tolerance" attitude to crime.

As a community service, we are starting to publish license plate numbers of cars which
appear to have been used to pick up, or cruise for, known prostitutes in our neighbourhood.

We are not accusing people of any criminal activity, but want to let owners of vehicles know what their car has been used for in our area.

We don't even assume that the driver of the vehicle is the registered owner - but the owner should be notified that the actions of the people using the car may lead to police impounding of the vehicle or other problems.

We believe the owners should be warned how their car is being used! The information will be collected only by people trained and designated to patrol the area. Sometimes license plates are stolen and used by others.

No one will give us the phone numbers of owners of these license plates, so we can't call them personally to let them know of our concern. We would prefer that!! This is the only way left in which we can try to get word to them of our concerns. If you have a better idea, please let us know.

We are also working with police to have notices of our concern delivered to homes of the registered owners of the vehicles. Residents here have requested that at least some of the notices be delivered in the Police "ANTI-PROSTITUTION" van.

A man in a dark car (license EDG 085) persistently propositioned
and tried to pick up a high school student walking to church. The mom of this girl almost
caught him! Rumor has it that if this car shows up in the area again, it may be "decorated" in unwanted ways.
Vehicles seen making short "visits" to buildings under surveillance
for suspected crack dealing & prostitution:

Car seen picking up local prostitute at McGee & Ellice (9/18 - 6:40pm)
Did you borrow that car? Do your family and co-workers know? You seem to be a regular cruising around here - what exactly
is your problem?
AAG 410 (Green car, older man) - Yesterday you were observed picking up a hooker in your car. When you realized you were being watched & your license recorded, you made her get out and tried to explain. Problem is, the "bank" you were going to has been closed for about 8 years.
DEJ 723 / Cruising Minivan (circled in the area at least 6 -7 times) - Friday early evening July 27
You seemed pretty nervous when I knocked on your window. You were observed turning down
Toronto, and coming back to meet a prostitute at that corner.
ALERT!!!  -  While we are collecting video of prostitution and drug transactions for eventual posting on the Internet - we DO NOT bribe people by offering to delete their video or license plates for money. That is bribery and we will do all we can to encourage prosecution of the jerk that's phoning people at home to blackmail them - claiming to be part of a community group. It's more likely that he's some scuzzy pimp or dealer getting even more greedy! 
Please call us if someone has attempted to bribe you in this manner.

"Bad Dates" (incidents from other parts of town)
Directly quoted from the Street Connections Newsletters
- An older white guy with a stocky build, driving a blue Ford F150 pick up truck. He is extremely dangerous and may be cruising track.
- On Monday August 28, three-four white guys were driving in a white pickup truck with grey primer on it, they drove by a girl under the bridge on Higgins and were throwing things and something hit the girl in the face.
-  On August 24th on Ellice & Young a gal was picked up and taken to St. Boniface. The guy was driving a blue Dodge minivan, 1994, in good condition and license plate BMF 144. The guy is white, short, blue eyes, short brown curly hair and a beard and moustache. Said his name was RICK. Took her to the place and said he had no money. There was a screwdriver on the dash, and he verbally threatened her to do whatever he wanted. She let him, and he left her there.
