Police found a vehicle driving through a mall north of Toronto early Wednesday morning to carry out a retail robbery in what they called a “daring crime.”

Sgt. York Local Police spokesperson Clint Whitney said two thieves used their car to drive through the glass entrance of Vaughan Mills near Highway 400 and Rutherford Road around 1:10 a.m. said.

Whitney said they drove through the mall to an electronics store, broke in, stole a ton of electronics, drove through the mall again, and then went through another glass entrance on the other side.

“Fortunately, no one was hurt,” Whitney told reporters outside the mall. “Nevertheless, it’s a daring crime and it’s amazing.”

The car, a stolen 2011 black Audi A4, was found Wednesday afternoon and investigators will examine it for evidence, police said. A decal was applied. The vehicle has a Quebec license plate: X10 SNP

Police will not reveal where the car was found.

Police say crime is ‘ridiculous’, ‘brazen’

Police were called at 1:30 a.m., but the two fled before police arrived. Officers found significant damage to both the mall entrance and the electronics store, Whitney added. Investigators are trying to determine the value of the stolen electronics.

“Whether it’s ridiculous or just impudent, it’s unacceptable,” Whitney said.

“People work in this mall. There will be cleaners. There will be security guards. Fortunately no one was hurt, just property damage. Severe property damage and loss of property, and we take it seriously.”

Both suspects were wearing hoods. Whitney said he could face charges including trespassing and trespassing, tampering with property, dangerous driving and possession of stolen property.
