WARMINGTON: Accused in drug, weapons case keep it in the family

It brings a whole new meaning to the phrase alleged crime family.

Or crime families.

One clue you may be living next to a scary neighbour is when all nine people living next door are taken out in handcuffs.

Mom, dad, their children and their pals too.

One house. Three handguns. Loads of ammunition. Crack cocaine. Fentanyl.

When Peel Regional Police were done with their raid on this Brampton residence in the Countryside Dr. and Torbram Rd. area they needed a whole bunch of cop cars to handle this motherlode of suspects.

These alleged criminals range from the age as young as 14 all the up to the age of 61. Even the 14-year-old has been charged with 13 firearms offences.

Talk about a dangerous household.

“As a result of the search warrant, police located and seized a loaded 9mm caliber Glock 17 handgun, an unloaded 9mm caliber Glock 17 handgun, and a loaded 9mm caliber Jericho 941S handgun,” said Const. Akhil Mookin.

Almost $14,000 worth of drugs seized as well.

Joshua Ansah, 18, was charged with 24 firearms offences and four counts of possession for the purpose of Trafficking. His brother David Ansah, 23, charged with 13 firearms offences and two counts of trafficking.

Another brother Samuel Ansah, 21, was charged with 13 firearms offences and two counts of possession.

Their mother Georgina Owusu-Ansah, 61, and father Kwaku Ansah, also 61, were both charged with 13 firearms offences and two counts of possession.

Also facing similar charges are Alexander Mills-Smith, 20, Emmanuel Amponsah, 20 and David Osei Owusu, 22.

I know I have to say none of these charges have been proven in court. But I must also say that was one hell of a bust by the Peel cops.

Just think where those guns and drugs could ended up!

“Community safety is a priority for Peel Regional Police,” said Sgt. Matt Bertram.

“Officers from all areas of Peel Regional Police are committed to preventing the illegal possession of firearms and will continue their work to keep the Region of Peel safe while working towards our vision of A Safer Community Together.”

Added Bertram: “The tireless work by members of the Street Level Organized Crime Unit has resulted in the arrest of nine individuals, the seizure of three firearms and ammunition along with a significant amount of drugs.”

Amazing police work.

But this is not the only family ties type show in the GTA this weekend past — as Durham Regional Police demonstrated Friday night in Oshawa.

They pulled over a car for speeding at the Ritson Rd. and Dean Ave. and found the vehicle was not just fast but an alleged rolling illegal drug store too.

When the dust settled, Const. George Tudos reports four firearms and $50,000 cash and $150,000 in drugs were intercepted.

And it is believed the people collared were a mother and son — Dylan Cadieux-Dacosta, 19 and Amber Cadieux, 43 — charged with a truckload of weapons and drug offences.

The good news is the weapons and drugs in both of these cases are no longer going to the street.

And 11 people are in custody.

The bad news is the way things are in Ontario, people end up on bail so easily — even for serious crimes like are listed here. For example, some of the names in the Brampton case are of people currently on bail.

In these cases, ironically, it will be mothers in need of a surety to seek bail in this episode of All in the (alleged) Crime Family.
