On August 14th, 2017, detectives from the Halton Police One District Criminal Investigations Bureau Robbery Unit arrested a fourth and final suspect for his role in last week’s violent series of street robberies.
The brazen acts occurred on Thursday August 10th, 2017 at 4:30pm in the Town of Milton. That’s when a group of four males began stealing items such as cell phones, money, watches and backpacks from unsuspecting pedestrians.
Three males (1 adult and 2 young offenders) were arrested shortly after the initial police response. The suspect vehicle was also recovered. Detectives executed a criminal code search warrant on the vehicle and recovered an UZI Submachine Pellet Gun (*not used in the commission of these offences) and several pieces of stolen property.
At 2:00pm on Monday August 14th, 2017 the remaining suspect was taken into custody without incident. He was subsequently held for bail.
