Police investigating after over 50 vehicles broken into at Kingston apartment building

Kingston Police are in the “preliminary stages” of an investigation into a spate of vandalism and theft involving over 50 vehicles at one location.

On Tuesday, Apr. 9, 2024, residents of an apartment complex on Old Mill Road awoke to find dozens of vehicles in the building’s underground parking garage vandalized, many with windows smashed out. Multiple residents reported items had been taken from their vehicles, which were parked in a secure parking garage only accessible by those who have an electronic key FOB (frequency operated button).

Residents of the building reported the incidents to police, as well as the building’s owner and management company, Homestead Land Holdings LTD. Kingstonist reached out to Homestead, but no response was received by time of publication.
