A Quebec woman said she was very surprised to learn that the stolen Audi had been used in a mall robbery in Ontario.

Taylor-Anna Covinger of Laval, Quebec, put her black 2011 Audi A4 up for sale on Facebook Marketplace in January as a way to raise the money needed for a down payment on her home.

On January 29, a man responded to her ad and came to her house to test drive the car. She says he took the car out of her twice. On her first drive, she said everything went fine, but when she asked for a test drive the second time, she said the man “started driving dangerously.” .

“He was driving really very dangerously and I didn’t feel safe, so [asked] It’s about changing places,” Covinger said.

But when she got out of the passenger seat, she said the man hit the gas and drove off.

“I tried chasing him. I fell. I was wearing boots and I slipped,” he said. “And from that moment on, I haven’t seen my car.”

But on Wednesday morning, Kovinger told York Regional Police (YRP) that his car had been robbed more than 550 kilometers from his home in Laval.

According to the York Regional Police (YRP), a car with the same license plate as Covinger allegedly drove through the glass doors of an Ontario shopping mall and into an electronics store.

The YRP could not confirm that Kovinger was the owner of the car, but Kovinger told CTV News Toronto documents showing her car matched the description and plate number provided by police in a previous press release. provided.

Surveillance footage inside Vaughan Mills, just north of Toronto, shows a black 2011 Audi A4 with Quebec license plates slamming into one of the mall’s closed entrances at high speed. It’s reflected.

The vehicle is then seen driving erratically down several corridors of the shopping center before crashing through another exit and fleeing the scene.

However, no video is shown when the suspect allegedly breaks into the store.

“It is a daring crime,” Sergeant. Clint Whitney told reporters outside the mall on Wednesday. Good luck, only property damage.”

The incident occurred around 1:10 am at a shopping center near Highway 400 and Rutherford Road.Police arrived shortly after 1:30 a.m.

He said the vehicle reportedly stolen was last seen heading down Jane Street.

“It looked like they were going shopping in that car. Very bold,” he told reporters. “I don’t know what was going through their minds.”

Whitney said police were looking for two suspects in connection with the incident but could not provide further details because they were both disguised in hoods at the time.

He said the suspect had taken “a large amount of electronic equipment” and could face a large amount of charges in connection with the apparent play.

Around 11 a.m. Wednesday, Kobinger said she received a call from the YRP telling her her car was involved in the incident.

“At first I cried,” Kovinger said when asked how he felt about the news.

“I never thought in my life I would ever see my car in a mall. [in Toronto.]”

While Mr. Kovinger said he was happy to find his car, he also said he was worried about the cost of having to travel to Toronto to retrieve it and the subsequent repairs.

Vaughan Mayor Steven Del Duca called the incident “completely insane” when speaking with CP24 on Wednesday.

“When I heard the story early this morning, I couldn’t believe it,” Vaughan Mayor Stephen Del Duca told CP24 on Wednesday.

“I shop at Vaughan Mills and so many people in our community do. It’s just ridiculous. I’ve lived here for 35 years. It’s a nasty community, but when you see some people, the criminal elements, doing what they do, it’s outrageous and we need to do everything in our power to fix it.”
