LILLEY: Gold heist was an inside job with connection to gun smuggling

It was an inside job. That’s the big news from the police-released details on Canada’s biggest gold heist. One year after the largest gold heist in Canadian history, Peel Regional Police released details of those arrested, those still on the lam and the connection between this theft ring and international gun smuggling.

On April 17, 2023, $20 million worth of gold and roughly $2.5 million in banknotes of various foreign currencies were stolen after being transported on an Air Canada flight from Switzerland destined for TD Bank in downtown Toronto.

Only $89,000 worth of the $20 million of stolen gold was recovered. That gold, in the form of six crudely made bracelets, was recovered along with smelting pots, casts and molds used to melt down gold to reshape it.

Using traffic cameras, police were able to track the truck as it travelled from Pearson airport along Hwy. 401 westbound to Bronte Rd. in Halton where it headed north and was lost once it entered a rural area.

Five individuals have been arrested, charged and released, while three are wanted and one, King-Mclean, remains in custody in the United States.

It was last September when King-Mclean was pulled over in Pennsylvania on a traffic stop that police became aware of gun smuggling. After running from police on foot, King-Mclean was arrested and the vehicle he was driving was found to have 65 illegal firearms in it including automatic weapons.

Prasath Paramalingam, 35, and Archit Grover, 36, both from Brampton and both facing charges in the gold heist, are also charged in the gun-smuggling operation...

Toronto police say they have laid 54 charges against three suspects following a carjacking investigation which culminated in a dramatic arrest where several police vehicles were smashed as the suspects allegedly attempted to flee.

More than $18,000 in Canadian cash was seized in the investigation, along with several handguns, police said.

At a news conference at Toronto Police Headquarters Tuesday, Acting Supt. Susan Gomes praised the officers involved in the investigation and said "miraculously none of our officers were harmed during the arrests."

Inspector Joseph Matys also revealed shocking numbers to media regarding bail saying, since last September, "forty-seven percent (47%) of adults that we've arrested have been released on bail for carjacking, and seventy-eight percent (78%) of youths who've been arrested for carjacking have been released on bail."

Gunman convicted in death of Toronto teen Jane Creba found guilty of shooting man in Ottawa

One of the men convicted in the infamous crossfire killing of Jane Creba, the 15-year-old Toronto girl who was killed on Boxing Day 2005, when gunfire erupted on Yonge Street, has been found guilty by an Ottawa jury for shooting a man in Vanier in 2022.

Tyshaun Barnett, 37, was found guilty last week of aggravated assault and firearms offences after firing four non-fatal shots into a man’s legs in an incident described by Crown prosecutors as a “revenge” shooting.

Barnett was also found guilty of discharging a firearm with intent to wound, maim, disfigure or endanger life, possessing a restricted handgun and possessing the loaded gun while under a prior weapons prohibition order.

The CCFR is a grassroots, non-profit firearm rights organization funded by it's members. We've never received any government funding for the work we do for licensed firearm owners... but do you know who DID take taxpayer money for 'work' they did to attack licensed gun owners?

Liberal anti-gun groups.

Video shows violent attempted carjacking in Vaughan, suspects linked to similar crimes across Toronto, GTA

York Regional Police released a video of a violent attempted carjacking in Vaughan and linked a stolen vehicle used by the suspects in other armed carjackings in Toronto and across the GTA.

Authorities responded to a carjacking attempt at a parking lot in the area of Yonge Street and Glen Cameron Road in Vaughan at around 2 a.m. on April 6.

Police say a woman was walking to her vehicle when an armed suspect approached and pulled her away. A second suspect then entered her car. The female victim struggled with the suspect, and her husband joined in to assist.

Video released by investigators shows the suspects attempting to flee in the victim’s vehicle. They then crash into another car in the parking lot while the woman’s husband tries to pull a suspect out of the vehicle.

The suspects then ran to a getaway car, a white Acura parked nearby, driven by a third suspect.

The investigation revealed that the white Acura being used by the suspects was stolen in Peel Region on April 1.

York Regional Police said on April 7, the Acura was then used in a carjacking of a blue BMW in Toronto. Officers charged the suspects involved in that incident on April 13 after they crashed into police cruisers.

Days later, York Regional Police officers used flashbangs, a distraction device that produces a flash of light and loud noises, and located the stolen Acura with three suspects inside.

The suspects attempted to flee on foot, tossing a loaded firearm. All suspects were taken into custody, and the stolen vehicle was recovered, police noted.

Poshur Williams, 18, of Toronto, and two male youths aged 15 and 16 were charged with firearm offences. At the time, police said Williams was on a release order for unrelated charges. The two youths were not identified by means of the Youth Criminal Justice Act (YCJA).

Investigators believe there may be other suspects linked to these carjackings and are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.

Two men York police believe carried out an alleged armed home invasion in Markham last weekend have been charged after they were arrested in Toronto.

Officers were called to a home in the area of Steeles Avenue East and Henderson Avenue around 4 p.m. on April 12 after a homeowner reported that two armed men allegedly broke into her house and threatened to kill her while demanding money, say York police.

The suspects fled in a white SUV and the victim was not injured, say police.

Police say investigators determined the SUV was allegedly stolen earlier that day from Orillia.

The white SUV was later located in Toronto where the suspects were found in a mall and arrested, say police.

A 24-year-old man from Toronto and an 18-year-old with no-fixed-address have both been charged with robbery with a firearm, disguise with intent, possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000 and mischief over $5,000, say York police.

According to police, the 24-year-old accused was on two release orders and was wanted by Toronto police at the time of these alleged offences.

Cory Morgan: The pre-election money grab

Why do Liberals keep spending billions of Canadians tax dollars when they have no chance of winning the next election? Why did Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spend $40+ million on a gun 'buyback,' without confiscating a single firearm? The Western Standard's Cory Morgan breaks down what the NDP-Liberals are up to, and why it will likely get worse before an election in October, 2025.

GUN BAN FAIL: Suspect Arrested for Armed Home Invasion and Two Additional Robberies

Investigators from the Central Robbery Bureau have charged a man in connection to an armed home invasion that occurred in Brampton.

It is alleged that on November 25, 2023, four suspects attended a residence near Sandalwood Parkway and McLaughlin Road, in Brampton. The suspects used force to enter the residence and, once inside, made demands for money and property. During the home invasion, a shot was fired by one of the suspects, and one of the occupants was struck and assaulted with the firearm and sustained injuries that required medical attention. The suspects obtained a quantity of property and fled the residence.

After an extensive investigation, investigators determined one of the suspects was also responsible for two other robberies.

It is alleged that on January 23, 2024, a victim was seated in their vehicle in a parking lot near Mavis Road and Dundas Street, Mississauga. The suspect approached on foot, armed with a firearm, and made demands for money. The victim was struck in the head with the gun as the suspect searched the vehicle for valuables. A quantity of property and vehicle keys were stolen, and the suspect fled on foot. The victim sustained minor physical injuries as a result of the robbery.

Further, police allege that on March 6, 2024, two victims prearranged to meet the suspect near McLaughlin Road and Ray Lawson Boulevard, Brampton. Upon meeting, the suspect produced a handgun and made demands for the victim’s vehicle. One victim was struck head with the gun, resulting in minor physical injuries.

The suspects fled on foot and did not obtain any property or the vehicle.

On April 10, 2024, police located a suspect in Brampton. During the arrest, the suspect was found to be in possession of a loaded 9mm firearm with ammunition.

Tyrese Williams, a 24-year-old from Bampton, has been charged with the following:

  • Robbery with a Firearm
  • Wearing a Disguise x3
  • Robbery x2
  • Using an Imitation Firearm x2
  • Unauthorized Possession of a Firearm
  • Knowledge of Unauthorized Possession of Firearm
  • Possession of a Loaded Prohibited Firearm
  • Possession of a Firearm Contrary to Prohibition Order
  • Possession of a Weapon for a Dangerous Purpose
  • Possession of Property Obtained by Crime

He was held in custody for a bail hearing at the Ontario Court of Justice on April 11.

At the time of his arrest, Tyrese Williams was bound by a weapons prohibition stemming from previous convictions for robbery with the specific condition not to possess any weapons.

GUN BAN FAIL: Lindsay police seize loaded firearm, drugs after man found sleeping in vehicle

A Lindsay, Ont., man faces multiple charges after police seized a firearm and drugs from a vehicle on Thursday morning.

Kawartha Lakes police say that at around 7:45 a.m., a suspicious vehicle was reported on a residential street. Officers found the vehicle was running and a man was asleep in the driver’s seat.

Police determined the man was impaired by drugs and he was arrested. Officers say they seized a loaded handgun, a knife, a quantity of cocaine, and $7,000 in cash.

Mitchell Gilliam, 35, of Lindsay, was charged with impaired driving (alcohol and drugs), possession of a Schedule 1 substance for the purpose of trafficking, possession of proceeds of property obtained by crime over $5,000, seven-firearm related offence including unauthorized possession of a prohibited or restricted firearm, and possession of a firearm contrary to a prohibition order.

Ontario man faces 68 charges in prolific drug and firearm bust

A man from Ontario labelled by authorities as an illicit drug and firearms trafficker is facing up to 68 charges after police seized 20 firearms and 73 kilograms of illegal drugs.

Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) said a joint investigation was carried out that identified large quantities of cocaine transported between Toronto and Montreal and the surrounding area.

On March 27, 2024, authorities executed two search warrants on a vehicle and a residence in Toronto. Various items were discovered, including 60 kilos of cocaine, 13 kilos of methamphetamine, 20 illegal firearms, over 3,000 rounds of ammunition and bulletproof vests, among other things.

This incident, caught on a RING camera, shows a group of armed youth attempting to steal a Corvette directly out of someone's driveway. As the home owner is alerted by his cameras, one of the thieves is heard saying “Don’t come out. If you come out I will shoot you. Don’t lose your life over a car.

Although this theft, going viral on social media, happened in California, it would be totally understandable if any Canadian viewer assumed it happened here in our own country, given how frequent armed carjackings and auto-thefts have become under the federal Liberal government.

Stay vigilant Canadians.

Chinese Immigrant Blasts David Hogg: ‘Go To China To See How Gun Control Works’

A Chinese immigrant who is running for U.S. Congress slammed far-left gun control activist David Hogg this week at gun control debate, telling him that he needed to go to communist China to see what the impacts of total gun control are.

Lily Tang Williams, who is running as a Republican in New Hampshire’s 2nd Congressional District, confronted Hogg on Wednesday at Dartmouth University.

“I am a Chinese immigrant who survived communism,” she began. “And under Mao, 40 million people were starving to death after he sold the communism to them. And 20 million people died, murdered, during his cultural revolution.”

“So my question to you, David, is that can you guarantee me, a gun owner, tonight, our government in the U.S., in D.C., will never, never become a tyrannical government?” she asked. “Can you guarantee that to me?”

“There’s no way I can ever guarantee that any government will not be tyrannical,” Hogg admitted.

“Well, then the debate on gun control is over because I will never give up my guns, she responded. “Never. Never. And you should go to China to see how gun control works for dictatorship of the CCP.
