Tracking stolen cars: How they could end up in West Africa (Marketplace)

CORRECTION ON APRIL 28, 2022: The original broadcast of this story on March 25, 2022 showed a brief visual of Banix Motors, a car dealership in Lagos, Nigeria. The visual was inadvertently used in a segment that discusses how some stolen vehicles from Canada are being resold overseas. That visual has since been removed. Banix Motors have indicated that they have never been associated with the sale of stolen vehicles from Canada and CBC never intended to associate Banix Motors with our investigation.

Cars stolen from driveways and shopping malls in Canada are ending up overseas. Some of the most-stolen vehicles include the Honda CR-V, Toyota Highlander, Lexus RX and Ford F-150. Marketplace has found stolen Canadian vehicles in West Africa. Highly organized criminal gangs are using the proceeds to fund and commit other crimes. We show how quick and easy it is for thieves to make off with vehicles using inexpensive tools that are readily available and ask why carmakers aren’t doing more to enhance security.
