TORONTO — Thieves made off with a 50-inch TV, treasured family heirlooms and a carefully curated sneaker collection, but it’s their son’s plundered piggy bank that really upsets Daniel Habashi and Andrea Van Leeuwen.
The Toronto homeowners say they were shocked to find their century-old Victorian rowhouse trashed and ransacked after renting it out for a weekend in July on the Airbnb-like website Kid & Coe.
They are now suing the New York-based company and estimate damages to the home and the value of stolen property total $100,000.
