Ottawa Police foil theft of high-end Lexus in New Edinburgh
Ottawa Police say they foiled the attempted theft of a high-end vehicle from a driveway in New Edinburgh early Friday morning that resulted in the arrests of four men.
As part of a frontline patrol project aimed at a series of high-end vehicle thefts this summer, officers identified a vehicle that could be a target—a Lexus in a driveway.
They then located a suspicious vehicle in the area. Around 3 a.m. police say two suspects attempted to steal the Lexus and were arrested.
Two other suspects fled in the vehicle but were arrested a short time later.
Charges are pending.
Police have been investigating a series of high-end vehicle thefts in different parts of the city this summer.
