I see a Caddy ... I thought they have On Star GPS tracking on this .... they could have located this not long after being taken.

What do the replacement VINs come from? Can't all be crashed cars.

Funny how the article omits to mention in what city the bust took place.

But, we can guess based on Peel Police involvement and how 7 of the 15 arrested were from Brampton...

I was impressed with all the silverados. See a few acuras, but mostly looks like domestic. Must be getting ready to ship them off to the prairies for covid pricing. Hot used demo sale.

Guys Lyons weren't the ones busted they have the exclusive towing rights with Peel Region because of some back door deals that took place decades ago so the cars must have been transported here until the rightful owners retrieve them.

Maybe that's why Lyons' are basically criminals and nothing happens to them. Cops turn their cheek when they know 'screwing' their neighbour's wife is bad for business.
