On March 13, 2019, investigators became aware of a warehouse robbery in the area of Steeles Avenue East and Goreway Drive in the city of Brampton, Acting Det. Stephen Sherwin said in news conference on Wednesday.

Six people, including a 75-year-old man, are facing a total of 63 charges in connection with a string of highly lucrative robberies.

In September, investigators from the Central Robbery Bureau assisted by tactical, K-9 and uniform officers arrested the remaining males believed to be responsible for the March 13 armed robbery.

Peel regional police say the men were responsible for a robbery in March 2019 in which a delivery truck loaded with $7-million worth of high-end electronics were stolen in Brampton.

The suspects, whose ages range from 45 to 75 years of age, are facing criminal charges including counts of robbery with a firearm, kidnapping and possession of a loaded and restricted firearm.

However, the stolen goods were rendered inoperable by the manufacturer once they were reported stolen.

While at that location, the suspects transferred the stolen goods into another truck and fled the area. The victim, who did not suffer any physical injuries, was then able to contact police.

Police say some of the same suspects then attempted another cargo heist on July 28 in the area of Steeles Avenue and Winston Churchill Boulevard. While a security guard was assaulted and held at gunpoint during the attempted robbery, the suspects escaped empty handed after realizing they were being recorded by a security camera.

Police said that the same night, four males from the same group were arrested together as they drove to reportedly commit another gunpoint robbery at a warehouse in Mississauga.

About a month later, in August, the same group of men entered a truck yard in Mississauga and stole three trucks. Later that night, police managed to intercept four of the suspects as they were on their way to commit another robbery at a warehouse in Mississauga.

According to Peel Regional Police, a delivery truck was driving in the area of Steeles Avenue East and Goreway Drive in March of 2019 when it was hijacked by two suspects armed with a handgun. They drove the truck to an industrial plaza near Clark Boulevard and Summerlea Road, Peel police said in a news release, and loaded the cargo into a waiting truck before driving off.

“Because they are co-ordinated and they did orchestrate these robberies, we think that there is possibly more – as far back as May 2018 or even prior to that,” said Det. Steve Sherwin.

Investigators, working with businesses affected by the theft, were able to identify a group of suspects. They arrested a total of six men with the help of several agencies, including the Canada Border Services Agency, Halton Regional Police and the Barrie Police Service.

Police added that while they don’t believe there are any ties to organized crime, they have not ruled that possibility out.

Garnett Ricketts, 45, of Mississauga, Ian Mitchell, 47, of Brampton, Dexter Abrams, 49, of Toronto, Christopher Mornan, 50, of Brampton, Kenrick Young, 61, of Brampton and Cecil Young, 75, of Toronto are facing a number of charges including robbery, robbery with a firearm and kidnapping.

Six men are facing a total of 63 charges after police say nearly $7 million in cellphones and tablets was stolen from a delivery truck in Brampton earlier this year.

“I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t surprised that a 75-year-old man was charged,” said Sherwin, adding police would not comment on the relationship between the six men. However, they did say they were known to police prior to the investigation.
