What Vehicles Are The Favourite Of Thieves?


First offenders who have been charged with theft under $5,000 can avoid a criminal record through Donich Law to be able to enjoy a fresh start. Criminal defence lawyers have extensive experience in defending allegations of internal employer-employee theft and shoplifting from retailers. However, the most desirable target among thieves is high-end SUV’s that are definitely worth more than $5,000.

According to Insurance Bureau of Canada’s annual ranking on the most stolen vehicles, Ford pick-up trucks are at the top of the list including high-end SUV’s. Meanwhile, IBC that works with law enforcement agencies and the Canada Border Service Agency that identifies stolen vehicles said that the favorite of car thieves in 2020 is the 2018 Honda CR-V SUV followed by the 2017 Lexus RX350, the 2017 Honda CR-V, 2018 Lexus RX350 and 2018 Ford F150 pick-up truck.

Brian Gast, national director of investigative services at IBC said that high-end SUV’s are now the most targeted vehicles because thieves were able to develop new ways of getting around security systems to gain access to the vehicles. SUV’s are very popular in the market because of their technology but thieves can now bypass their security systems.

Radio signals that can captured through a key fob are replicated to gain access to the vehicle. Thieves can start the vehicle without touching the original key. Many of the vehicles are stolen by organized crime groups and then sold to unsuspecting consumers in Canada or abroad. Sometimes the vehicles are stripped down for parts after they change the vehicle identification number.

There are also instances when stolen vehicles are modified in significant ways for dangerous activities like street racing and illegal drifting events. The market for stolen vehicles and stolen parts has contributed to the increase in vehicle thefts. This is very concerning to law enforcement agencies, the insurance industry and for the greater population.

Donich Law can help first offenders resolve a $5,000 theft while avoiding a criminal record. There are people who have been falsely accused of theft but have been successfully represented by experienced criminal defence lawyers. They strive to resolve a charge without criminal conviction to save your future.
