TORONTO – NEWS – Toronto Police Service requests the public’s assistance identifying suspects involved in a Theft Over $5000 investigation.
It is reported:
– in January, 2020, approximately $11 million (USD) worth of pure silver, in bullion form, was stolen from a shipping container in Montreal, Quebec
– a partial recovery of the silver has been made in Toronto, British Columbia and Massachusetts, USA.
The original silver bars had several distinctive stamped markings including a serial number and “Korea Zinc”. Investigators believe that some of the silver was smelted into ingots for a better chance of avoiding suspicion when selling.
