Halton Police sieze over $2-million worth of stolen retail goods

December 13, 2022

Last week, Halton Region Police Service (HRPS) executed warrants on more than a dozen locations as part of “Project Kingfisher,” which targeted retail theft in the region.

More than $2 million in stolen goods were recovered and 12 charges were laid against 11 suspects. More can be found here.

RCC is pleased with this operation – conducted by RCC National Loss Prevention Taskforce member Superintendent Robert Gourley – and by the inter-agency collaboration of police services, support for retail businesses, and the leadership shown throughout the project.

“Retail theft is not a victimless crime,” said Gourley. “These thefts cost Canadian retailers billions of dollars a year, costs that are passed on to consumers when they go shopping. It’s also a near certainty that people purchasing these items online had no idea they were buying stolen goods.”
