Following search warrants executed on March 18, nearly 200 Samsung and Apple products and hundreds of accessories were recovered at a downtown retail outlet and other locations. It’s alleged that a group of people received stolen cellular phones taken from several locations in 14 Division, between December 2013 and March 2014, and then put them up for resale at Apple N Parts at 6373 A Yonge St. and on Kijiji. Detective Ron Chhinzer said the majority of the phones were stolen from young women.
