Peel Police have nearly a dozen suspects in custody following a firearms theft in Brampton.
Between 6-7 a.m. on Friday, officers say four handguns and five rifles were reported stoles from a home on Myna Court. A white Volkswagen Jetta station wagon was also stolen, later recovered on McHardy Court.
Officers say the stolen guns were properly stored in lock boxes with trigger guards, and were legally registered.
Officers have since recovered one firearm, and are executing search warrants in an attempt to recover the rest.
Peel officers say that of those arrested, it’s possible they may not be actively involved in the investigation, and the suspects were all picked up at the same location.
No charges have been laid.
