The streak of stolen cars from Canada seized by Customs at Malta Freeport continues

- So far, 12 vehicles seized
- An intensive operation involving Malta Customs, Malta Police and the Canadian Authorities

The streak of stolen cars from Canada seized by Customs at Malta Freeport continues as two Jeep Pick-ups, a Mercedes and a Ford Pick-up were found in four containers.



Customs Officials made the find after several containers arriving from Canada to Malta, en-route to Abu Dhabi, were inspected and four of them were found to contain the stolen vehicles.

The scanning equipment helped Customs Officials on duty identify the stolen cars in the 40- foot containers at the Malta Freeport.


 As with the other cases of stolen vehicles intercepted last week, the shipping documents did not tally with the contents. Customs Officials informed the Canadian Authorities about the find whilst the police were informed about the case which is being investigated further.


This is the third case, so far, in an ongoing intensive operation involving Malta Customs, Malta Police and the Canadian authorities, where a total of 12 cars were seized; 4 Ford pick-ups F450, 2 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV, 2 Lexus RX350, 1 Jaguar F-pace, 1 Ford Expedition SUV, 1 Jeep Rubicon and a Mercedes G63.
