Ten people face a total of 140 charges after a four-month long police investigation into a series of armed TTC robberies.

Dubbed Project Castle, the investigation was launched after five TTC booths were robbed over a six-week period starting March 7.

Staff Insp. Mike Earl said a series of raids were conducted where a number of stolen TTC passes were found. It’s believed the suspects were selling the passes, as well as TTC tokens and tickets, online.

Police said the same group of people are believed to be responsible for 7 other robberies between March 7 and May 28 – including gas stations, doughnut shops, a Scotiabank and a Cash Money store.

Each robbery was orchestrated by three or more people every time, and in every case the suspects were armed. Police believe the suspects are involved with other robberies that happened before March 7 and hope the public will come forward with any information which could help in the investigation. Among the 10 people arrested, three were young offenders.
