On February 22, 2019, the Halton Regional police responded to a residence on Sheddon Avenue in Oakville for a report of a stolen vehicle.

Several days later, a member of the public noticed an abandoned vehicle in the same area.  Officers responded again and located a vehicle stolen from the City of Brampton.  Members of the Forensic Identification Bureau conducted an examination of the second vehicle and seized DNA evidence.

As a result, the Center of Forensic Science later confirmed that the DNA sample belonged to a 26 year old from Toronto.  The Halton Regional Police arrested the suspect on Sunday, April 14, 2019.  The suspect was taken to the Oakville station where he was held in custody pending a bail hearing.

The investigation is on-going and members of the public who may have further information pertaining to these crimes are encouraged to contact Detective Omar Nadim of the 2 District Criminal Investigations Bureau, at 905-825-4747 ext. 2278.
