Toronto Police are warning of a disturbing new trend.

Over the course of the last month, homes have been broken into, across the city, while the owners are at funerals or wakes.

Constable Wendy Drummond says there have been 3 incidents in the last week, in 33 division alone in North York near Scarborough.

And she says it's the same case, time after time.

Police believe the bandits watch the newspapers for the obituaries, use that information to get addresses  and then strike while the owners are out of their homes.

No arrests have been made so far, but police are asking home owners, if you are leaving, even for a few hours, make sure you have someone lined up to check in on your place.

Drummond says similar incidents have been reported in 5 other divisons across the city.
