TORONTO – Toronto police will release more details today about an investigation into a crime ring which targeted high-end homes.

Raids carried out in the Greater Toronto and Niagara region yesterday led to the arrests of eight people, while police are still looking for a ninth.

They say they’ve recovered five million dollars worth of stolen luxury cars and other personal property.

The investigation — dubbed Project Yellowbird after a Porsche Carrera stolen in December — involved officers from several Ontario jurisdictions.
