$ 11 million silver heist: Canadian police search for suspects who stole pure silver bars
(Kitco News) Toronto Police Department is seeking help from the public in their search for suspects involved in the theft of $ 11 million pure silver bars.
Bars of the precious metal were stolen from a shipping container in Montreal, Quebec, in January 2020. Suspects started with pure silver valued at $ 11 million in bullion form.
Since then, police in Toronto, British Columbia and Massachusetts, USA have partially recovered some of the physical metal.
“Investigators would like to speak to anyone who may have received these bars or are concerned they might have received silver by-products from that stolen shipment.” it says in the police statement.
The stolen silver bars had distinctive markings such as a serial number and the stamp “Korea Zinc”. However, police said the bars were melted into bars to sell with less suspicion.
