EPT Prague is coming up in a week, but if there were any celebrations planned for last year’s winner, those plans may have to be scrapped. On Tuesday, Halton, Ontario Regional Police announced that 2022 EPT Prague Main Event winner Jordan Saccucci is one of four men wanted in connection with a series of home burglaries in Halton, metropolitan Toronto and southern Ontario become.
In addition to 33-year-old Saccucci, the other three men were identified as Marcel Blackburn (37), Paul Nkrumah (36) and Dumark Lindsay (41).
The police executed search warrants On November 21, they searched the suspects’ homes and recovered a number of items believed to have been stolen from the targeted residences. None of the suspects were home at the time. Police believe the four men knew they were wanted and also believe they are responsible for the burglaries on November 22nd and 23rd.
Based on reports from residents, police indicate the suspects may be approaching people’s front doors in broad daylight, their faces covered with surgical masks or other face coverings, and possibly wearing hoods and gloves. Luckily, their only goal seems to be burglary, and they avoid violence, as police say that when confronted by homeowners (who they didn’t expect to be home), they quickly make up an excuse than they would have been busy landscaping sooner.
However, the public should not approach any of the four men and should instead call the police. Halton Regional Police have advised the four suspects to turn themselves in.
Jordan Saccucci defeated French poker pro and third-place finisher in the 2009 World Series of Poker Main Event, Antoine Saout, heads-up to secure victory in the 2022 EPT Prague Main Event. After a deal with Saout, Saccucci left with 913,250 euros, or about 1 million dollars of it. In total, he has won $1.37 million in his live tournament career.
None of Saccucci’s other live cashes come close to EPT Prague (as evidenced by his total earnings), but other successes include a ninth-place finish at WPT Fallsview in 2016 and a 14th-place finish at WPT Playground in 2016 Year 2017.
