Investigators are still searching for a mystery man who has shipped several suspicious packages to a store in downtown Toronto going back years, and police say he could be hiding out in Brampton.

The Toronto Police Service says there have been at least four of the odd incidents, starting in December of 2021.

Police say an unidentified man has repeatedly shipped packages to a store in the area of Queen St. W and Spadina Ave. in Toronto, with the shipments ranging from “unknown substances” to “frivolous” items inside.

And while police say there is no concern with public safety the repeated incidents are being investigated as harassment, and have turned to the public for leads.

Investigators say the man has frequented the area of Airport Rd. and Queen St. East in Brampton and police are asking the public to help identify the man.

Anyone with information on these incidents or who may have information on the suspect is asked to contact the Toronto Police Service at 416-808-5200 or contact CrimeStoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477), or at
