Toronto G20 Summit

More G20-related arrests

Police arrest 7 more suspects in its sweep of mischief makers

By DON PEAT, Toronto Sun

Six men and a 17-year-old boy are the latest arrests by Toronto Police’s G20 investigative team.

Police said all the charges relate to the violence that swept the city on Saturday, June 26.

Det.-Sgt. Gary Giroux alleged one of the men nabbed was trying to reach into a trashed police car to steal the laptop inside.

Another arrested man is charged with allegedly torching one of the four police cruisers set ablaze in the downtown during the rioting, police said.

Two the men were arrested Sunday and five of them were arrested Monday.

Last week, Giroux released photos of 10 of the “most wanted” suspects in his G20 investigation.

Six people allegedly captured in those pictures have been arrested.

Giroux said more photos will be released Wednesday of the 20 most wanted.

That list will include some photos of suspects released earlier that police are still hunting for, he said.

Andrew Loughrin, 23, Jeffrey Delaney, 23, Robert Kainola, 24, all of Toronto, are charged with mischief over $5,000. Delaney is also facing a charge of attempted theft over $5,000.

A 17-year-old is charged with two counts of mischief over $5,000. He cannot be identified under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

Three of the men arrested were the subject of arrest warrants police announced on Friday.

Kurt Roarco, 22, of no fixed address, is charged with arson, mischief over $5,000 and failing to comply with probation. Michael Corbett, 29, and Bryan O’Handley, 19, are both charged with mischief over $5,000.

Six were released on bail Monday. Roarco has a bail hearing Tuesday.

    The Toronto G20 Summit is long gone but not far from the hearts and minds as of yet. The police are still chasing down the prime suspects of the mayhem that occurred that fateful weekend. I have heard and read on the news that the Toronto police are using Youtube to search for these suspects. There was in fact a lot of amateur footage put on the web that clearly covered a good deal of the protests and violence of the summit.

    I agree that the protesters that turned a peaceful demonstration into a violent one should be held responsible for their actions. I do however also recall seeing footage, on Youtube I might add, of the police using violent means to subdue peaceful protesters. Now I believe that if this event has become such a major issue, that both sides of the coin should be equally investigated. Yes, find and prosecute those responsible for burning down police cruisers and destroying some of the downtown Toronto businesses, but don’t ignore that fact that some of your own officers were excessively violent. If one side is held accountable so must the other.
