Halton Regional Police Service is investigating a theft of a Land Rover motor vehicle that occurred on June 25, 2020 at 7:47 pm in the area of Wheat Boom Drive and Post Road, in the Town of Oakville.

The victim was operating a 2014 Land Rover on Post Road approaching Wheat Boom Drive when she stopped for a 4-way stop sign at that intersection. While stopped, a white coloured vehicle (possibly an SUV) intentionally rear-ended the victim’s vehicle at low speed.

This prompted the victim to exit her vehicle to assess the damage sustained. At the same time, a male exited the driver side of the suspect vehicle and engaged the victim in conversation about the collision.

The male entered her driver side and drove off in her car while the victim was outside the vehicle. A second occupant of the suspect vehicle drove the suspect vehicle away at the same time.

The victim was not injured during the theft. There were no threats or weapons used during this incident.

Wheat Boom Drive and Post Road are located in the northeast corner above the intersection of Sixth Line and Dundas Street East. The streets are just north of the Uptown Core shopping centre. The intersection is also less than 1km north of the Halton Regional Police Service station on Dundas Road.
