Authorities in New York have busted a band of luxury car thieves attempting to transport around $10 million dollars in stolen vehicles. This reminds me of Guy Fieri’s Lamborghini theft recently, and the string of luxury car dealership thefts.

The suspects stole 291 expensive exotic cars by using information obtained through dealership employees to make counterfeit keys.
City police commissioner Raymond Kelly said the group consisted of 21 members and that they were doing “swift business” reselling Lexus and Toyota vehicles in the States and overseas. New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said 16 of the thieves face felony enterprise corruption charges.
Two brothers employed at a Brooklyn-based Toyota dealership used identification numbers to search the Toyota/Lexus database for corresponding key codes. At least they didn’t make off with a Lexus LFA supercar!
