The accused was arrested on Tuesday following a months-long investigation, which also included the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in the United States.

Early this morning, police say a 56-year-old suspect from Ajax was arrested in connection with the case.

Police say the accused was cornered while driving in the Highway 401 and Brock Road area of Pickering.
