A Mississauga man who claimed the top prize of $1 million in a poker tournament last year is now wanted in connection to a series of home break-ins in the GTA.

Halton Police today released the photo of Jordan Saccucci, 33, who is wanted along with three others following a months-long investigation into 30 break-ins that have happened in Mississauga, Hamilton, Oakville and Burlington.

According to reports, in some of the robberies, men approached the front door of a residence during the day with their faces covered with surgical masks and wearing hoods and gloves. If confronted they claimed to be there to do construction or landscape work before quickly fleeing.

Officers raided the homes of the suspects last week and recovered several stolen items. However, the men they are looking for are still at large and arrest warrants have been issued.

Police believe the men are aware they are wanted. As well, police are investigating links to subsequent break-ins that occurred in Oakville, Mississauga and York on Nov. 22 and 23.

Those wanted were last seen driving a newer model black Chevrolet Tahoe RST.

  • Dumark Lindsay (41) of Mississauga (also known to frequent the Brampton)
