    Guy rents one apartment to 12 different families and scams them out of $19,000 in 1987.

    Twenty two years later Toronto cops catch the guy.

    "It's neat, eh?" said Acting Detective Sergeant Keith Moxley. "We regularly get them three, five, 10 years [later], but 22? That’s pretty rare. You’re looking at something where the original investigating officers have retired."

    Neat? :)

    Does Canada not have a statute of limitations?

    OTD, I'm not a lawyer but I'm happy to play one on sj.

    There are (for the most part) no statute of limitations on criminal offenses in Canada.

    My understanding is that there's a six month limitation on minor offenses.
