They’ve called our fair city Toronto The Good for years, because we have so little crime compared to most other cities of it’s size. As economic times get tougher for the legit community, so too does it get tougher for the scumbags.
On Monday, a guy walked into an Acura dealership in Toronto and asked to test drive a TL without Navi. They didn’t have one on the lot. A short time later, the same guy visited Acura Sherway, and made the same request. They had exactly the car he wanted to see in their inventory. The salesman went out on the drive with the customer. At some point during the drive, the customer pulled out a handgun and put it to the salesman’s temple. The guy told the salesman to get out of the car and then took off with the TL.
While scenes like this may be commonplace in some of the larger cities south of the border, we aren’t accustomed to it here in Toronto. Perhaps that’s why the scumbags are brazen enough to do it, because we aren’t expecting it.
Times are tough indeed.
