On Tuesday, police executed eight search warrants across the GTA and in Brossard, Quebec following a two-month-long investigation for high-end vehicle break-ins and theft across the city. 

The suspects broke into the vehicles and reprogrammed the software to recognize a new key or fob, allowing them to be stolen without triggering its alarm.
