Police are continuing the hunt for three males involved in two armed robberies, one of which happened on Friday, Sept. 30.

At 10:43 a.m., OPP responded to a armed robbery in the Bolton area of Caledon, in which three males fled with an unknown amount of cash and drugs.

One of the suspects was armed with a gun.

They fled the scene in an older model black Honda, possibly an Accord, police say.

Police believe these are the same suspects involved in another robbery a week earlier on Sept. 23. At 5:12 p.m., the suspects targeted a business at 18 King Street East in Caledon, then sped away westbound on King Street East after taking cash and drugs.

One of the suspects held a firearm while a third suspect waited outside in the driver’s seat of the aforementioned black vehicle.

Suspect descriptions are as follows:

  • Suspect 1: Male, black, thin build, 18-25 years old, 5’3″, wearing a grey hoodie, dark blue pants, white shoes, a surgical mask, and yellow construction gloves. This suspect carried a black duffle bag and a black pistol, police say.
  • Suspect 2: Male, black, thin build, 18-25 years old, 5’5″, wearing a black hoodie, grey or camo pants, black shoes with red accents, a surgical mask, and yellow construction gloves.
  • Suspect 3: Male, black, thin build, wearing a surgical mask and a black or dark grey hoodie.

“The investigation is ongoing with the assistance from the OPP Forensic Identification Unit (FIS),” said police.

OPP are working with neighbouring municipal police to investigate these incidents and other GTA robberies, which are believed to be related. More info to come.
