Driver of car with doors open on QEW linked to break-and-enters
Hamilton police say the burgundy car captured in an online video with the rear doors wide open and what looked like wood sticking out each side has been tied to a number of break and enters.
Police say a detective recognized the car in the video and were able to link it to an alleged theft in April.
A man and woman were spotted on video driving the vehicle inside a compound on Brockley Drive in Hamilton and prying the gate open on April 13. They allegedly stole 450 kilograms of bulk steel with an estimated value of $3000.
After seeing the video, police were able to determine where the vehicle was and seized the 1991 red Chevrolet Lumina from an address in Hamilton.
On Thursday, charged 42-year-old Christopher Cielecki and 42-year-old Nicole Farr with one count each of break and enter, and seized the car
