Thirty-six vehicles were broken into at the underground parking garage of an apartment building in North York.
Police said the vehicles were broken into Wednesday at 335 Van Horne Avenue, which is located north of Highway 401 and Highway 404.
Residents making plans to get their car windows replaced Wednesday afternoon said there wasn’t even much of value in their vehicles.
One victim said she had sunglasses stolen.
Joseph Ahmen, another victim, said the thieves who smashed his windows got a couple rolls of change that he uses for laundry.
Ahmen said the garage door had been broken for approximately a week, and had been scheduled to be fixed Wednesday.
It was the second set of break-ins in the area this week, according to police. Sixteen vehicles were targeted on Cassandra Boulevard on Tuesday. It’s not clear whether the cases are related.
Police are investigating.

How often should my a garage door be serviced?
Your garage door is a large piece of moving equipment made up of many parts. Some families use their garage door more than their front door. We recommend having your garage door and operator serviced every year in order to ensure a properly working door and operator. The noises your door or operator makes are your initial “warning signs” that something is not quite right. The longer you put off the necessary service, the more damage may result.

The most common torsion springs have an expected life of about 10,000 cycles (one opening and one closing is a cycle.)
