Canadian Police Searching for $1 Million EPT Champ for Alleged Home Robbery Spree
Poker player Jordan Saccucci is one of four individuals police in Ontario, Canada have identified as suspects in a robbery spree that included more than 30 residential properties.
Saccucci, who won nearly $1 million for taking down the 2022 European Poker Tour (EPT) Prague Main Event, has not been located but a warrant is out for his arrest.
Poker Player Involved in Alleged Crime Spree
According to local reports, the poker player and three others Marcel Blackburn (37), Dumark Lindsay (41), and Paul Nkrumah (36) robbed multiple homes wearing surgical masks and hoods, sometimes during the daytime. If confronted, the alleged crooks apparently claimed they were at the home for construction or landscaping purposes.
Police raided the homes of the suspects on Nov. 21 where they discovered and recovered "numerous" stolen items from the victims' properties. Investigators are convinced the suspects are aware they've been wanted for the alleged crimes.
The suspects reportedly parked their black Chevrolet Tahoe RST in the driveway of the victim's property before approaching the home during an invasion attempt.
The public has been warned to report any suspicious activity to police and to refrain from approaching the suspects as they should be considered dangerous. These break-ins have occurred in the Ontario cities of Halton, Peel, York, Caledon, and Hamilton, mostly large-sized communities in the Toronto area.
Saccucci won the EPT Prague Main Event in December 2022 for over $900,000, beating French pro Antoine Saout heads up. He has $1,366,000 in live tournament cashes dating back to 2016, according to The Hendon Mob. The Canadian poker player also has two deep runs in World Poker Tour (WPT) events, including a ninth-place finish for $27,856 at the 2016 WPT Fallsview Poker Classic.
Halton Regional Police Service is asking anyone with knowledge of Saccucci's whereabouts, or any of the four suspects, to call 905-825-4777 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
