York Regional Police have just seized 73 stolen luxury vehicles with a market value of more than $4.5 million.
The seizure is the culmination of a covert operation that has been going on for more than two months now, as police slowly infiltrated the organization.
The vehicles were being held at a secret location in Mississauga.
Abu Sadiq Ayi, 41, Michael Atta, 32, Prince Boateng, 42, and David Ansong, 40, all of Toronto, are now facing charges including theft of a motor vehicle over $5,000, possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000 and trafficking in said property, and their dates in court are pending.
"Our investigators have been working tirelessly to identify those responsible for the many thefts of high-end vehicles in York Region," said Jim MacSween, chief of the York Regional Police.
