Thieves Steal 14 Ford Edge Crossovers From Oakville Assembly

Over the past couple of years, the automotive theft epidemic in the U.S. has expanded to include a number of Ford-owned storage lots, where thieves continue to take a number of pricey pickups and SUVs, largely, directly from the source. These crimes have involved a series of Ford F-150 Raptor and Raptor R pickups – some of which were found missing their wheels and engines – a variety of Ford Performance models that had their rolling stock taken directly from a parking lot, and a number of F-150 Raptor pickups stolen from Roush Performance, to name just a few incidents. Now, this type of crime has spread north of the border, as thieves recently stole a total of 14 Ford Edge crossovers from the Oakville Assembly plant in Canada, too.

According to the Halton Regional Police Service (HRPS), a number of thieves broke into the Oakville plant earlier this month by cutting a hole in the fence surrounding that facility, after which they somehow managed to make off with more than a dozen Ford Edge models valued at around $630,000.

On the bright side, a grand total of 12 of those 14 models have since been recovered in the Greater Toronto Area following a joint effort between multiple police departments there. Additionally, police have arrested five suspects believed to have been involved in this case, all of whom are facing a multitude of charges, as one might imagine.

Thus far, those charges include possession of property obtained by crimes both under and over $5,000, multiple counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking, several counts of failure to comply with a release order, possession of a prohibited weapon, possession of a controlled substance, and one charge for breach weapons prohibition.
