Durham police allege 59 vehicles worth $750K towed, stored unlawfully in Brampton


Two Brampton men and two companies are facing a variety of charges after Durham Regional Police investigators allege 59 vehicles were towed and stored unlawfully in a Brampton tow yard.

In a statement released on Friday, officers said a search warrant was executed at the business near the intersection of Rutherford Road South and Selby Road, south of Clarence Street, a week earlier.

The statement said 59 vehicles, collectively worth around $750,000, were recovered by officers after being towed to the location and stored “unlawfully.” Some vehicles were also sold unlawfully, police said.
