They can also be dismantled and sold for parts.To get somewhere: This may be referred to as “joyriding.” Auto theft of any kind is a crime and innocent people may get hurt or killed as a result.To commit another crime: Stolen vehicles used to commit other crimes are often recovered – abandoned and badly damaged – within 48 hours of their theft.All about the Top 10 Most Stolen Vehicles List Every December since 2003, IBC has published an annual list of the top 10 stolen vehicles in Canada.
