Police say they have arrested the fourth and final suspect wanted in connection with a spate of break-ins reportedly committed in Mississauga, Hamilton, Oakville and Burlington.

On Dec. 8, Halton police said they arrested 38-year-old Hagersville man Marcel Blackburn in Oakville. 

Police say he has been charged with 68 break-and-enter-related offences and breaching probation. 

He was held in custody pending a bail hearing in Milton.

Earlier this week, police announced that they had arrested the other three suspects, including a $1 million poker champion from Mississauga.

Other suspects arrested in connection with the incidents include poker star Jordan Saccucci, 33, Mississauga man Dumark Lindsay, 41 and Brampton man Paul Nkrumah, 36. 

Police allege that Nkrumah was in possession of a stolen Jeep Cherokee at the time of his arrest. 

Police also say officers recovered the Chevrolet Tahoe RST connected with the break-ins. Police allege it was located in Brampton with fake plates attached to it and determined to be stolen.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation can contact the 2 District Criminal Investigations Bureau at 905-825-4777 ext. 2216.
