Five young people arrested in rash of robberies across GTA

Peel Police confirm that a group of suspects linked to as many as 15 robberies across the GTA are now under arrest.

Officers caught up with the suspects just after midnight, Saturday. 

"Police had an incident with a suspect vehicle - a Rav 4 - that they were looking at in regards to a series of robberies that had been going on in the GTA," Const. Danny Marttini told NEWSTALK1010. "Out of that, they did make an arrest of five young persons in relation to that series of robberies." 

However, because there was a collision, the SIU has been called in to investigate. Marttini says they don't know at this point if the police watchdog has invoked their mandate.

Peel Police are appealing with any witnesses or anyone else with information to come forward.
