Stolen vehicles were disguised in garages of Cergy and of Villiers-le-Bel (Val d’Oise) before being resold on the Internet. After nearly a year of investigation, the police federal police (Pj) de Paris dismantled a vast organized car trafficking network. Seven individuals, from Garges-lès-Gonesse, Osny and Clamart (Hauts-de-Seine), aged 21 to 44, were indicted for organized robberies, four of whom were remanded in custody.
Porsche, Bmw and Suzuki
The investigations began last October following the attack on a garage on Boulevard Murat in Paris. During the night, two criminals enter the establishment and steal the keys of three Porsche, of them 911 Carrera S including a convertible, and a 987 Boxster, with which they take flight. But that is not enough for them.
An hour later, the individuals return with four accomplices and this time steal a motorcycle. Suzuki Gsr 600 and two electric scooters Bmw. A theft declared by the victim who, three weeks more, discovers his vehicles for sale on the Internet. First the Porsches, offered on a Snapchat account, then one of the scooters on leboncoin.fr.
The investigators succeed in identifying the suspects, but also in finding the three Porsches which were stored in an underground car park on rue de l’Évasion, in Cergy-le-Haut. This is where the team parked the stolen vehicles in order to make up them before reselling them, as shown by the images recorded by the surveillance cameras of the parking lot. By viewing these, the investigators of the Pj of Paris were able to note that the criminals had also deposited there seven other vehicles stolen in the Val-d’Oise, in particular of the Peugeot 3008, 5008 and 308.
They also bring to light that the team was using a second underground car park, avenue Pierre-Sémard, in Villiers-le-Bel, near which a suspect had been spotted on several occasions. In it, the police got their hands on four stolen Peugeot and one Renault cars. Investigations established that eight other cars, again 3008s and 5008s, stolen from the Val d’Oise but also in Yvelines, the Seine et Marne and the Hauts-de-Seine, had passed through it.
While some of these vehicles were sent to Marseille by containers, the investigation is continuing on a rogatory commission in order in particular to determine what happened to the other stolen cars and to determine the financial side of the case.
