The agency says officers searched three containers destined for export on April 11 and determined that four vehicles were stolen.

More than a week later, officers found another four stolen vehicles in two export containers, while a third container examined the next day had six stolen vehicles.

The agency says its export unit searched two other shipments on April 27, finding five more stolen vehicles — bringing the total value of the 19 vehicles to about $650,000.

They have all been handed over to Halifax police as part of an ongoing investigation.


The agency says it has seized 39 vehicles valued at $1.5 million between Jan. 1, 2017, and April 30.
