Police west of Toronto say they’ve made a series of arrests after a truck carrying nearly $7-million worth of electronics was hijacked in March.

Peel Regional Police say six men were involved in the robbery, which took place in Brampton, Ont.

Investigators determined that two of the men were able to stop the truck and drive it to an industrial plaza, where they shifted the goods to another truck they then used to escape.
