Detectives with the Kingston Police Criminal Investigation Division are investigating recent thefts of Lexus vehicles that are alleged to have taken place on Nov. 12, 2021.
According to Kingston Police, the thefts occurred while the vehicles were parked in the owner’s driveways with the suspect or suspects managing to gain entry, start the vehicles and eventually steal them without the use of vehicle keys.
