MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Six men are facing dozens of charges for allegedly robbing a delivery truck loaded with nearly $7 million of electronics in March, police west of Toronto announced Wednesday.

The incident happened March 13 in Brampton, Ont., when two of the accused allegedly forced a delivery truck to stop and held the driver at gunpoint, Peel Regional Police said in a statement.

The two suspects then drove the truck to a nearby industrial plaza, where they shifted its cargo of cellphones and tablets into their own vehicle and drove off, acting Det. Stephen Sherwin said at a news conference.

The six suspects, between the ages of 45 and 75, face 63 charges in the case, including robbery, kidnapping, theft of a motor vehicle, and use of both an imitation firearm and a real firearm while committing an offence.

The accused appeared in court in Brampton throughout August and September, police said.

Sherwin said co-operation between police departments in Halton Region and Barrie, Ont., as well as the Canada Border Services Agency, was instrumental in making arrests in the case.
