Tow truck blaze the latest attack in ongoing turf war: Cops


Recommended Posts

York police believe the tow truck fire in Whitchurch-Stouffville was intentionally set


Police in York Region are investigating what officers have described as a suspicious tow truck fire,  apparently the latest strike in the GTA’s ongoing towing turf war.


Emergency crews were called Monday night to a home in Whitchurch-Stoufville — on Hwy. 48, near Bethesda Side Rd. — where they encountered a Freightliner flatbed tow truck engulfed in flames.


Police alleged that the fire, which caused an estimated $150,000 worth of damage, was set intentionally.

Detectives urge anyone with information to call 1-866-876-5423, ext. 7541, or Crime Stoppers.


Torched trucks are a hallmark of the years-long war between rival outlaw towing companies in southern Ontario, and come just weeks after a truck was set ablaze at a home in Ajax earlier this month.
