Police have arrested five suspects in connection with motorcycle thefts in the North York.
On July 15 at around 9 p.m., the suspects – ranging in age from 21 to 34 – were arrested and charged with stolen property and firearm offences.
Detective Chad Reid of 33 Division said a BMW 325 was used to trail victims.
“We allege they would follow individuals and wait for a good opportunity to steal the motorcycles,” he said.
Reid said the stolen property was in most instances re-painted and sold to unsuspecting buyers.
The investigation, conducted by 32 and 33 Divisions Major Crime Unit officers, resulted in the recovery of three stolen motorcycles and a stolen Black BMW 325.
An imitation AK-47 and .45 Glock handguns along with a Swiss and Arms air pistol were also seized by police.
John Leo Razon, of London, Jaycob Sanchez, Eddy Pico and Cyril and Dominique Mirador, all of Toronto, are facing several charges, including possession of property obtained by crime, careless storage of ammunition and pointing a firearm.
