On Tuesday September 9th, 2014, a uniform patrol officer attempted to conduct a traffic stop in the area of Sixth Line and Upper Middle Road, Oakville.

The vehicle had a female driver and male passenger and failed to stop for Police. The SUV was located in a nearby townhouse complex, the male passenger having fled the vehicle.

Investigation revealed that the male passenger was, Anthony Joseph MAIORANO, an escaped convict from Savannah, Georgia, that is currently serving 20 years in prison for aggravated assault and robbery charges. Toronto Police Fugitive Squad attended the scene to assist with the investigation and location of MAIORANO.

Several residences in the area were searched in an attempt to locate MAIORANO, however, he was able to evade Police. His current whereabouts are unknown. Several nearby schools were placed in a “hold and secure” state as the residences and area were searched.
