Police in Canada Recover $3 Million Worth of Classic Cars

Two people have been arrested and 16 cars have been recovered as the result of a months-long investigation.

The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have arrested two individuals who have been accused of stealing over a dozen classic cars worth over $3 million. The police first launched the investigation in late 2023 after receiving a complaint of stolen vehicles.

According to a report from Global News, Robert Bradshaw, 54, and Gary Leblanc, 55, both of Stirling, Ontario were arrested in connection with the crimes. They were charged with theft of motor vehicles over $5000, fraud over $5000, using forged documents and conspiracy to commit an indictable offense. Leblanc picked up an additional charge of uttering threats.

The large-scale investigation involved a number of divisions within OPP including the OPP Fleet, Supply and Weapons Services Bureau, Central Hastings OPP Crime Unit and Emergency Response Team. They also received assistance from the OPP-led Provincial Auto Theft and Towing (PATT) Team and the OPP-led Provincial Asset Forfeiture Unit (PAFU).
