Police find parkade access codes in chop-shop raid
Last Updated: Friday, November 28, 2008 | 3:00 PM AT Comments0Recommend5CBC News
Halifax police say they've uncovered an effort to steal cars from the garages of apartment buildings.
Police raided a chop shop in Harrietsfield on Oct. 29 and seized a number of parts from stolen vehicles, particularly Hondas.
Investigators also found information about the remote controls that open the underground garage doors in various buildings in Metro Halifax, as well as the programmable access codes, RCMP Staff Sgt. John Langille said .
"These codes and remotes could be stolen during a theft from a vehicle," he said. "They could put the remote back in the vehicle and then later acquire the same brand-name remote, go by that address and then activate that door opener."
