Theft CrimesTheft, larceny, and burglary are the most common property crimes in Scarborough. In 2010, the largest percentage of criminal activity was related to theft crimes.
Juvenile Offenses – A large number of college students means a lot of underage kids being offered alcohol or even drugs. Police in the city monitor the roads extra carefully and underage OUI and underage drinking are common offenses.
OUI – One of the biggest concerns in Scarborough is drivers under the influence. College students are notorious for not knowing their limits and making stupid decisions.
