Three men from Montreal were arrested in Toronto Wednesday after a $200,000 fraud investigation.
The men allegedly travelled to Toronto from Montreal on multiple occasions since 2013, according to Toronto police.
They allegedly pickpocketed in downtown bars and restaurants, broke into a hotel room, and stole wallets, money and ID cards, police said.
They then used the ID information to change PINs and use the stolen cards to purchase high-end items from Toronto stores, police said.
The men, aged 27, 32 and 48, were arrested near Queen Street West and James Street. They face 112 fraud- and theft-related charges.
Investigators believe similar incidents also took place in Peel Region, Ottawa, Laval, Quebec and Vancouver.
