BMW Sals must be slow...
A small BMW dealership in downtown Toronto is the scene where 2 employees came up with and carried out a poisoning plot, with the goal of murdering another employee.
No word yet on what prompted such a move on their part, but Global News says that both suspects are now in custody and could be facing serious jail time if they’re found guilty.
The bad news (for them) is that prosecutors have the smoking gun, more or less: footage of them taking their mate’s water bottle from the service area and returning with it minutes later. Presumably, they took it so they could pour engine coolant into it, knowing precisely what it would do to their colleague.
The incident actually occurred last week, with the colleague in question being taken ill after just one sip of water from his bottle. He went to the pharmacy and bought an over-the-counter pill that he hoped would help with what he assumed as a bad tummy ache. Some time later, he took himself to the hospital, where investigations revealed he had been poisoned.
Rahim Jaffer, 34, was arrested in connection with the incident, and ultimately charged with administration of a noxious substance. His pal, Szilard Czippan, 20, went missing right afterwards but he was eventually captured by police at the end of last week.
He was brought in after he was pulled over in Belleville, Ontario, on suspicion of driving under the influence. He has been charged with administration of a noxious substance and attempted murder. Presumably, he came up with the plan to put engine coolant in the water bottle.
A spokesperson for BMW Toronto said of the incident that, “it is a small dealership, a family environment where there is a certain level of intimacy. A trust was broken. [Employees] are surprised and shocked.”
