Over 20 cars stolen from the UK were recovered in Kampala.

Stolen London Lexus recovered from Kampala

This Lexus was stolen from West London in April but using a smartphone app, it was discovered in Kampala but the officers were stunned when they discovered 28 more vehicles.

Most of these cars use keyless technology which has enabled criminals using reprogrammed keys to drive off. It takes a thief five seconds to break into a keyless car.

The vehicle that was stolen from West London was tracked to Le Harve in France then shipped to Middle East in Oman before making it's way to Mombasa. The Lexus RX 450h was driven from Mombasa to Kampala.

"This investigation is an excellent example of the close co-operation between the UK National Crime Agency, National Vehicle Intelligence Service, Interpol and APU to tackle the increasing threat from organised vehicle crime."

"Working with the police and security services in Kenya and Uganda, we have been able to dismantle an international criminal network that has been responsible for stealing high-value cars from the UK and exporting them to East Africa," Paul Stanfield, National Crime Agency.

Other cars that were recovered include a Range Rover Evogue, BMW X3, Audis and other prestige makes are in the process of being repatriated.
