Toronto Police seeking suspects involved in theft of pure silver worth $11 million


The Toronto Police on Tuesday requested public’s assistance in identifying suspects involved in theft of pure silver worth around $11 million.

“In January, 2020, approximately $11 million (USD) worth of pure silver, in bullion form, was stolen from a shipping container in Montreal, Quebec,” the Toronto Police said in a statement.

The statement further added that a partial recovery of the silver has been made in Toronto, British Columbia and Massachusetts, USA.

The original silver bars had several distinctive stamped markings including a serial number and “Korea Zinc”.

The Toronto Police also added that investigators believe that some of the silver was smelted into ingots for a better chance of avoiding suspicion when selling.

Investigators would like to speak to anyone who may have received these ingots or fears they may have received silver by-products from this stolen shipment, the Toronto Police said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 416-808-7300, Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477).
