Toronto police conduct early morning raids in North York
WATCH: Toronto police carried out raids Thursday morning in North York.
TORONTO – Several raids were carried out this morning in North York related to an armoured car robbery at a Toronto mall earlier this year, police confirmed to Global News.
The Emergency Task Force, hold-up squad and K-9 units busted down several doors in the Sheppard and Don Mills across the street from the Fairview Mall.
The robbery took place on Jan. 20 when a silver 2000 Dodge Caravan pulled up alongside the armoured vehicle and two armed suspects confronted the guards.
Shots were exchanged but police say there were no injuries.
Police say the suspects grabbed a bag of money before fleeing and the getaway van was later found abandoned about a kilometre away.
In May, a security company offered a reward of up to $10,000 for the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the robbery.
Toronto police also released security footage of the incident asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the suspects.
There’s no word yet on the number of arrests made in the raids or if any charges have been laid.
