Police have found more than $150,000 worth of stolen high-end vehicles set to be shipped overseas hidden inside a Caledon shipping yard.
The Caledon OPP say investigators were alerted to a stolen vehicle tracked to a shipping yard in the community of Bolton on Thursday (Aug. 18).
An investigation led officers to a specific shipping container where a 2021 Ranger Rover HSE valued at approximately $115,000 and a 2020 Lexus RX350 valued at approximately $50,000 were recovered, according to police.
Police say the vehicles had been reported stolen – one to Toronto Police Service and the other to Peel Regional Police – and the shipping container was scheduled to be shipped overseas.
The incident is the second time high-end vehicles have been found at the same address in Bolton in recent months, a police spokesperson confirmed to inSauga.com.
Back in June, police were called to a shipping yard on Coleraine Dr. in Bolton to recover a stolen vehicle and reportedly found three luxury vehicles stashed inside a shipping container.
A 2020 Land Rover Range Rover SVR, 2020 Lexus NX and a 2019 Maserati Levante 61G were recovered in that investigation, all of which were reported stolen from the Toronto area, according to police.
