Three men are facing charges following a series of test drive thefts in the GTA.
Police say that even when a sales representative joined the suspects for a test drive, a staged collision was orchestrated in order to complete the theft.
Police say Mercedes vehicles were primarily targeted.
Police arrested two suspects who were allegedly in a recently stolen vehicle, and search warrants at two Brampton homes turned up a second stolen vehicle, about 450 grams of fentanyl, 45 grams of crack cocaine, a quantity of suspected Xanax tablets and approximately $10,000 in cash.
Officers also seized a Mercedes that was stolen from Hamilton while searching a residence in Toronto, as well as stolen Ontario dealer plates, and fraudulent Ontario and Quebec driver’s licences.
Eighteen-year-old Azad Sandhu of Brampton, 20-year-old Steven Singh of Mississauga and 23-year-old Yassine Jenkal of Toronto have been charged with numerous offences.
