Toronto police modernization plan means not showing up at Liquor store lootings

LCBO thieves getting away Scotch-free

Thieves are walking out of LCBO stores with millions of dollars in booze and “immediate action” is needed, says the union representing the Crown corporation’s frontline employees.

And Sun sources say such crooks have become increasingly emboldened over the last year since the Toronto Police Service, as part of its modernization plan, decided to stop physically responding to LCBO stores after a theft — or any other theft under $5,000 — unless the culprit is still on site or there is a risk to public safety.

Is this part of community outreach?
