Recently stolen from London, a high-end Bentley automobile has reportedly been discovered at a bungalow in Karachi, Pakistan.
The UK National Crime Agency informed the Collectorate of Customs Enforcement (CCE) in Karachi that a stolen Bentley Mulsanne automobile was parked in the driveway of a home in the affluent DHA neighbourhood of the city, prompting the CCE to perform a raid on Saturday, according to The Express Tribune.
The authorities also discovered that the vehicle’s registration number had been faked after an inspection. They found that the car’s chassis number matched the information the UK authorities had provided about the stolen vehicle.
The report states that after the home’s owner failed to produce sufficient documentation, the department arrested both the broker who sold the vehicle and the owner of the residence.
Separately, PTI stated that the car had been stolen in London a few weeks prior and that those responsible were able to import the vehicle to Pakistan using the credentials of a senior diplomat from an east European nation. The government of the aforementioned diplomat is believed to have now called him back.
According to reports, the owner admitted during questioning that another person had sold the vehicle to him and that person had also agreed to get approval for the paperwork process from the relevant authorities.
A user shared a video of a stunning ash grey Bentley that was parked on a porch and being prodded by a few people in an apparent attempt to move the vehicle.
