Investigators with the York Regional Police Hold-Up Unit have laid multiple charges following several cellular telephone phone store robberies across the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).

Officers began an investigation after a series of cell phone store robberies in Toronto, York Region and Peel Region took place between November 2017 and January 2018. During each of the robberies, one to three suspects entered the store armed with knives or firearms. The employees were ordered to the back of the store and instructed to open the safe. The suspects filled hockey bags with cell phones and fled the scene.

The suspects have been charged and search warrants have been executed. Investigators believe that the stolen cell phones may have been sold and they are asking anyone with information to please contact police.

York Regional Police would like to thank officers from the Toronto Police Service and the Peel Regional Police Hold-up Units for the strong partnership and co-operation that led to these arrests.
