The Chicago source of Toronto's guns
Published: Saturday, June 21, 2008
A Chicago gun shop owner believed to be a source of guns used in crimes across Southern Ontario was arrested in the same sweep this week that resulted in 443 charges against 36 individuals accused of gun smuggling and drug trafficking. Dubbed Project Blackhawk, the investigation began in 2006 as a result of a tip from U. S. law enforcement officials that 237 handguns had been smuggled into Canada. Details of the case against the gun shop owner, Ugur ''Mike'' Yildiz, a Turkish citizen in his mid-30s, were laid out in an affidavit filed in U. S court this week. . . .
