Durham Police reportedly found three women from Quebec connected to a stolen car in Whitby last night.

A car was stolen near Rossland Road West and McQuay Boulevard on the town’s west side shortly after 3 a.m. The area is home to a suburban neighbourhood. It sits next to Highway 412 and the greenspace barrier with Ajax.

One of the area residents reported his Luxeu SUV had been stolen from his driveway. Police managed to track the car to Lakeridge Road South and Dundas Street West, about five kilometres southeast. They found the Lexus with another vehicle.

The officers tried to pull them over, but allege the Lexus sped off. The two occupants in the second car were arrested immediately. The Lexus made it a short distance but ultimately veered off the road.

The driver then took off on foot. Police brought in a K-9 unit to search for her. The dog quickly flushed out a suspect who was also arrested. All three are 23-year-old women from Quebec.

  • theft of a car,

  • dangerous driving and,
  • fleeing police

Sid Ali Karkar and Noureddine Kerdja are charged with;

  • theft of a car and,
  • possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000

All three remain in custody pending a bail hearing. Anyone with information can call police at 1-888-579-1520 ext. 2823 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
