Investigators with York Regional Police’s organized crime bureau are expected to release the details of what it calls the largest traditional organized crime takedown at a July 18 news conference at its Aurora headquarters.
An 18-month-long probe into traditional organized crime, dubbed Project Sindacato, resulted in arrests, charges, and the seizure of millions of dollars in proceeds of crime, a York police statement said.
York Regional Police chief Eric Jolliffe will provide additional details on the investigation tomorrow, and will be joined by Det.-Sgt. Carl Mattinen, of the traditional organized crime task force, and Canada Revenue Agency’s acting director general Stéphane Bonin, of that agency’s Criminal Investigations Directorate.
