Toronto police announce results of special investigation into high-end car theft – Toronto | The Canadian News

TORONTO – Toronto police will announce today the results of a special eight-month investigation into high-end car thefts.

Toronto police say Project Taurus has led to the recycling of vehicles, cash and weapons.

Police say the investigation has so far also led to several arrests.

Experts say new technology has made it easier for car thieves to steal vehicles, while a pandemic-driven shortage of semiconductor chips has increased demand.

They say thieves were seen stealing cars on surveillance video in as little as thirty seconds, right out of someone’s driveway.

Today’s news conference will be held at the Toronto Police Service’s headquarters with Staff Supt. Lauren Pogue of Detective Operations, Insp. Richard Harris of Hold Up Squad and Insp. Shannon Dawson of 32 Division.
