Peel Police have arrested a 41-year-old Mississauga man, alleging he bilked players from as far away as the U.S. and Australia out of $100,000 for the privilege of joining the fake Brampton-based organization. It was called the Walton Gates Academy, a part of an organization known as The Canadian Junior Elite Hockey League. The $100-grand allegedly came from the tuition and fees the league charged.
Cops accuse Randy Gumbley, the former owner of the Streetsville Derbys, of going to elaborate lengths to continue his hockey league scam. They allege he spent months attracting 'prospects' using an elaborate website and took them around to arenas and community college facilities, claiming they were associated with the league and his academy.
