Thief targeting vehicles from high-end rental car agencies
Car thefts are a daily occurrence in any major city and aren’t worthy of much media attention, until the cars being nabbed happen to have names like Rolls-Royce and Lamborghini.
Such is the case in Toronto, Canada where police now believe a thief is targeting high-end vehicles. The cars in question include a Lamborghini Gallardo, a Mercedes-Benz CLS55 AMG, a Lexus LS470 SUV and a Rolls-Royce Phantom – valued at $350,000.
All the vehicles were stolen on either July 6th or 7th from high-end rental car locations, including Affinity Luxury Car Rentals. Each vehicle was rented legitimately and then not returned, and because the renter had to provide photo ID, the police have a pretty good idea who they are looking for: Ibrahim Mehraliyev, a native of Azerbaijan now living in a Toronto suburb.
Anyone with information that might lead to an arrest is asked to contact the York Regional Police.
