(Ottawa) — The East Criminal Investigations Unit is seeking the public’s help in identifying two individuals involved in the theft of a motor vehicle from a private sale late last month.

On July 28th, 2021, the owner of the vehicle met with a potential buyer in Osgoode for his 2011 white Dodge Ram 2500. The owner had listed his truck for sale on social media platforms.

Two men arrived and asked to take the vehicle for a test drive, however they never returned (see photos).

Suspect one is described as a Caucasian man, mid 20’s, 5’9” (175cm), short curly blond hair, blue eyes, green shirt, and blue jeans.

Suspect two is described as a Caucasian man, mid 20’s, long dark black hair, dark sweater, and blue jeans.

The vehicle at the time was bearing Ontario licence plate “4159VM”, with a black Thule roof rack, and a “Jenda” sticker on the rear passenger side window.

Anyone with information about this incident, can identify the suspects, or has seen the vehicle, is asked to contact the East Criminal Investigations Section at 613-236-1222 ext. 3566.
