The extinguishers two groups of youths stole from the Waterford Arena will not be enough to cool down the heat they will feel.  
Police think the different culprits are involved in the theft of the fire extinguishers.  The first happened just after one yesterday (Thursday) afternoon when two were taken and one was discharged in a dressing room.  Then according to the OPP another group came back just before 7:30 that night and took another one.  They were confronted by arena staff, and police, after talking to witnesses have a pretty good idea of who they are after.  The investigation is continuing and charges are pending.

Passengers in Toronto taxis are being warned to be extra vigilant after Toronto Police have discovered the latest scam.  
Police say there have been cases where the taxi operator has taken a fare's debit card and switched it out with another one from the same bank.  It happens when the machine is being passed back and forth so it gives the driver both the valid card and the PIN.  Police say the low lighting inside a cab makes it easy to do.  They say it is not a problem of one particular company and there have been multiple occurrences.  
Police say if the operator tries to do this contact police immediately, noting the cab number and company. (bd)

The property tax break owners of vacant properties currently get in London may be coming to an end.
The change could mean almost 2 million more dollars for the city. Under the current system if a building sits empty for more than 90 days it is eligible for a 30 percent rebate on the property taxes.  London Councillor Stephen Turner thinks that favours speculators and hurts development. The province has given municipalities the power to end the rebate program and city staff is recommending it be phased out gradually. (bd)

When animals are removed from the equation, London Police's use of force in human interactions dropped in 2016 from the previous year.

In total, the number of occurrences last year was 227 and in 2015 it was 188.  But, 47 incidents involved police having to put an animal down. With 157 front line officers now equipped with tasers, up from 30, the number of incidents jumped to 62.  With one exception, all of the injuries reported were minor.  The exception was the first deadly police shooting in 17 years, killing Samuel Maloney on December 23rd.
