At least five Toronto police officers have been suspended with pay amid an internal investigation into corruption in the Greater Toronto Area towing industry.
Toronto Police Service spokesperson Meaghan Gray confirmed the suspensions in a statement provided to CP24 on Wednesday.
At the time police said that several tow truck employees from different companies were in possession of stolen police radios and that the information was broadcasted by one driver to other tow truck drivers for a monthly fee.
“If there are additional criminal charges, an update will be provided,” Grey said on Wednesday after confirming the suspensions.
The professional standards investigation that led to the charges against Joseph began in August, 2019 but a violent turf war for control of the GTA towing industry has been playing out for a lot longer.
