Nine people are facing dozens of charges after police busted an armed robbery ring in Mississauga that targeted employees as they carried large amounts of cash to and from their workplace.

Peel Regional Police say they joined forces with other police agencies across the GTA to investigate and then execute numerous search warrants in various cities in the past month as part of an effort dubbed Project Roscoe.

Guns, cash and various property items have all been seized in the massive probe, which began in February in response to a series of armed robberies, thefts and home invasions reportedly dating back to last year in central and east Mississauga.

The victims in each case were business employees carrying large cash deposits to and from their Mississauga workplaces, police say.

They were reportedly approached while walking alone and threatened with a gun and forced to hand over the daily bank deposits and other valuables.

None of the victims were physically injured.

Investigators say they’ve laid more than 60 charges against nine people in the past month.

“This multi-jurisdictional project is just one example of investigators’ excellent work and perseverance, which sends a strong message that criminal activity will not be tolerated in our communities,” said Peel police Deputy Chief Marc Andrews. “There is no tolerance for offenders who steal from the hard-working members of our community, and I want to commend all of the officers for their exemplary work to keep our communities safe.”

Ann-Marie Nwiah, 18, Brandon Bunbury, 27, Vishna Vickneswaran, 19, Treyvaun Gomez, 19, Teshawn Tulloch, 27, Travon Edwards-Bryan, 27, Tyrell Morgan, 27, Prince Adu-Yeboah, 21, and a 17-year-old male youth who cannot be identified are facing dozens of charges related to the investigation.

Police did not say where those charged are from. All are slated to appear in Brampton court for bail hearings.

The investigation continues.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 905-453–2121, ext. 1233 or Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
