Border ser­vices agency seizes 19 stolen ve­hi­cles

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

The Canada Border Ser­vices Agency says it in­ter­cepted eight ship­ments con­tain­ing 19 stolen ve­hi­cles at the port of Hal­i­fax in April. The agency says of­fi­cers searched three con­tain­ers des­tined for ex­port on April 11 and de­ter­mined that four ve­hi­cles were stolen. More than a week later, of­fi­cers found an­other four stolen ve­hi­cles in two ex­port con­tain­ers, while a third con­tainer ex­am­ined the next day had six stolen ve­hi­cles. The agency says its ex­port unit searched two other ship­ments on April 27, find­ing five more stolen ve­hi­cles — bring­ing the to­tal value of the 19 ve­hi­cles to about $650,000. They have all been handed over to Hal­i­fax po­lice as part of an on­go­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
