September 10, 2020  By The Canadian Press

Toronto police say they’ve arrested a group of 11 people and charged them with a combined 95 offences in an effort to slow the city’s gun violence problems.

Police displayed six of the seven guns they say they seized in the bust at a news conference this morning.

Arrests were made at nine addresses across Toronto and at three residences in Cambridge, Ont.

Police also say they seized large quantities of drugs and over $100,000 in cash that police believe was from the proceeds of criminal activities.


The group, which police allege was led by 19-year-old Salman Jogiyat, was based in the Thorncliffe Park area of Toronto.

Charges listed include multiple counts of attempted murder, conspiracy to commit murder, and participation in a criminal organization.

The eight-month investigation involved police from four different divisions.
