Over 700 cars found in Canada's biggest car-theft operation
font size    

Canadian police have uncovered over 700 stolen cars and vehicle parts in a scrap yard north of Montreal, in what may be the biggest car-theft operation in Canadian history, local media reported Wednesday.

"It is probably the biggest seizure of stolen cars from a recycling business in Canada," Laval police spokesperson Nathalie Lorrain told Canadian Television (CTV).

The investigation began during a routine patrol of the area, located in Duvernay, Laval. Officers said they spotted suspicious activity and did a spot check, turning up three stolen vehicle identification numbers.

Police then obtained a warrant to search the entire yard. Early estimates suggest more than 700 stolen cars, including luxury vehicles.

Some of the cars were brand new and there were a lot of luxury SUVs, "a lot of cars like Mercedes, Jaguars, you name it. They're all here," said Lorrain.

Police said the business has been operating for several years, buying and selling used and damaged cars, along with car parts. The 39-year-old owner and one employee have been arrested on charges of possession of stolen goods.
