Brampton woman faces 36 charges for fraudulent sales of over 100 vehicles through ServiceOntario, MTO

Mississauga (Mar 20) – Peel police have arrested a second individual a week after apprehending Mylton Hylton with an unlicensed car dealer and broker who was facilitating the fraudulent sale and transfer of vehicles.

On Thursday, March 14 investigators arrested Milton’s sister, 25-year-old Monifa Taffe-Hylton of Brampton. She is to appear before the Ontario Court of Justice in Brampton to answer to 36 Criminal Offences of Uttering Forged Documents and Trafficking of Stolen Goods.

Investigators believe that Milton Hylton utilized loopholes in the Service Ontario procedures that allow “authorized” individuals to conduct third-party transactions to register a vehicle.

The 24-year-old Brampton man was arrested on March 7 and charged with 168 auto crime offences. It is alleged that between June 2023 and early 2024, Milton, alongside accomplices, made several fraudulent transactions through the Ministry of Transportation (M.T.O.) and Service Ontario across the province, with over 100 vehicles involved.

Several vehicles that were illegally registered have been identified as re-vin vehicles.

Police have contacted several victims, individuals, and businesses who have had vehicles registered to their name without authorization.

This investigation remains ongoing, and investigators anticipate additional arrests and charges laid.

This is a large-scale crime affecting many vehicles in multiple jurisdictions across Ontario. Investigators are appealing to the public for assistance in locating additional victims and vehicles.

Police are encouraging members of the public who have purchased or conducted business dealings with Milton or Monifa or the advertised company of “Royalty in The Building” to contact the Peel Regional Police Commercial Auto Crime Bureau at 905-453-3311 extension 3313 or via email at autocrime@peelpolice.ca

Information may also be left anonymously by calling Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or visiting www.peelcrimestoppers.ca.
