The suspect in two Brampton pizza store robberies never got away with any cash, but is still facing several charges.

Peel Police say the incidents took place at two different pizzerias on November 26 and 28 when a man armed with a replica handgun entered the store and demanded money from the workers.

In both cases the victims never handed over the cash and the suspect left empty handed.

An investigation by the Central Robbery Bureau led them to a Brampton residence on December 10 where a search warrant turned up two replica firearms and clothing that matched the descriptions that were worn in the crimes.

As a result, police have charged Joseph Ostoma Bejar, 28, with two counts each of robbery, wearing a disguise, and using an imitation firearm.
