TTC workers arrested, charged with theft

The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) is rolling out mandatory ethics training for all supervisory and management staff in the wake of a joint investigation with Toronto police that resulted in the arrests of three current and three former transit workers.

On June 11, police executed warrants in Toronto, Mississauga and Penetanguishene with the assistance of the TTC’s investigative section. It is alleged that TTC employees were making purchases of equipment for personal use and that the items purchased were not used for any type of work conducted by the TTC.

Charges were laid against Amadeo Cuschieri, age 55; Maciej Zych, 49; Dan Doron, 50; Steve Cuschieri, 34; John Barrie Mulhall, 66; and Lorenzo Lamanna, 56.
