Police are searching for a man who shipped multiple suspicious packages to a store in downtown Toronto over several years, and say the man could be in Brampton.

There have been four of the strange incidents over the last few years according to the Toronto Police Service, 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., with the items in the packages have ranged from “frivolous” to “unknown substances.”

While there’s no concern with public safety, police are investigating the incidents as harassment and have turned to the public for leads.

Investigators say the culprit frequents 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 this incident or 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
