Police have charged seven people in connection with a string of alleged cellphone store hold-ups across the Greater Toronto Area.

Police say their investigation began after a December robbery at Markham store, and say the suspects were later linked to similar retail hold-ups in Ajax and Pickering.

They say search warrants were executed at nine homes in Toronto and surrounding areas on Tuesday after a co-operative investigation by several police forces.

Police say the suspects face charges including robbery with firearm, theft of motor vehicle under $5,000, break, enter and theft and firearm use while committing offence.

The suspects are all from Toronto except for one Brampton resident, and are between the ages of 18 and 28.

They are due to appear in Newmarket court Thursday
