TORONTO—Police have arrested two men following an investigation into multiple break-and-enters targeting numerous industrial businesses in the Toronto area.

Police say the suspects were arrested outside a Markham business last Wednesday, but are not releasing their names.

The arrests came a day before police raided a warehouse where they recovered a large quantity of stolen items.

Among those items were brass, copper and other metal fittings as well as a number of stolen vehicles and equipment, including a printing machine, forklift and copper shredder.

Advertisment

Police also seized industrial-sized metal cutters and generators, but they don’t know yet who owns the equipment.

They say the estimated value of property recovered is $4 million.
