3 people from GTA facing firearm offences in connection with incident in Alliston neighbourhood

OPP

Ontario Provincial Police say they have laid numerous charges against three men from the Greater Toronto Area and seized a firearm in connection with an incident near Kidd Crescent in Alliston.

On Tuesday around 3 a.m., police say a vehicle they tried to stop fled from authorities and was located a short time later, and discovered to have been stolen.

"As a result of the investigation, a firearm was recovered and three individuals were taken into custody and charged," OPP stated in a news release on Thursday afternoon.

The suspects are a 23-year-old from Scarborough, a 19-year old from North York and a 17-year-old from Toronto.

The trio have each been charged with several gun-related offences including robbery using a firearm, as well as break and enter into a house, trespassing by night, conspiracy to commit an indictable offence, and possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000.

The 23-year-old is also charged with flight from police, and the 19-year-old was dinged with a mischief charge.

The suspects have been remanded into custody and are to appear in court in Barrie.

Kidd Crescent was the scene of a daylight shooting outside a home last Thursday.

OPP have not said there is a connection between the incidents.

In the shooting, a 21-year-old man was wounded, and police said they were looking for three males who were wearing dark clothing and masks and fled the area in a white Camry.
