Police fear all out Ontario mob war

Another fire in Woodbridge is the latest in more than a dozen attacks in Hamilton and York region that have police wondering if southern Ontario is becoming a mob battlefield. Organized crime investigators are probing a night-time fire at a home that was fired upon twice earlier this month.

Property records show the Mellings Drive house belongs to Maria Arevalo and Giuseppe Cuntrera.
Police are also investigating an attempted arson at the home of Cuntrera's uncle in August. Also that night, someone tossed what appeared to be an accelerant into the Di Manno Bakery in Vaughan. The Caffe Corretto was destroyed by an explosion in late June. The Corretto was one of 11 cafés in Toronto and York Region where investigators found illegal gaming machines in January 2016 during a multi-police force sweep known as Project Oeider.
Police seized 74 illegal gaming machines and approximately $200,000 in cash from the 11 cafés.
