Two Brampton residents are among the four people arrested after Caldeon OPP seized over $100,000 worth of stolen cheques, identifications and drugs in a bust at a Bolton hotel.
After an initial investigation of a theft at the hotel resulted in four arrests for drug related charges, Caledon OPP say a judicial authorization was granted to search a hotel room.
That search led to the seizure of multiple cheques worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, documents with personal information (a book of ID’s containing personal information), wireless printer, surgical tools, items used for forging cheques and other suspected stolen property.

Pardeep Singh, 21, of Brampton is charged with possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000, forgery, failing to comply with a release order and possession of heroin.
