Before he was able to act, Police in Toronto, Canada arrested a man who planned a daring heist straight from the plot of the “Gone in 60 Seconds” Hollywood blockbuster.
Andrzej Zalewski was charged with numerous counts of break and enter, theft over $5,000 and possession of stolen property after he was found with 99 sets of car keys to vehicles worth $4 million.
According to Det. Paul LaSalle, Zalewski and an accomplice had a “shopping list” of cars, and had been canvasing neighborhoods, breaking into homes and snatching keys to vehicles. Keys in Zalewski’s possession when he was arrested included those to a Lexus, Range Rover and even a Maserati. All cars on the list were 2011 models.
Police are confident Zalewski has ties to organized crime, which is known for planning such heists where cars are custom ordered for clients overseas.
