Six people, including a 75-year-old man, are facing a total of 63 charges in connection with a string of highly lucrative robberies.
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.
However, the stolen goods were rendered inoperable by the manufacturer once they were reported stolen.
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.
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.
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.
