Police seize 62 firearms following months-long investigation

A months-long investigation into an alleged criminal enterprise has led to the arrest of six people and the seizure of 62 firearms that police say were “destined” for Toronto streets.

The investigation, dubbed ‘Project Barbell,’ began in the fall of 2021 after members of the Toronto Police Service’s Integrated Gun and Gang Task Force became aware of two individuals that were suspected of trafficking firearms within the city.

Police say that officers ultimately executed a series of search warrants at addresses and vehicles associated with the suspects on May 28 of this year.
