A terrifying robbery and police takedown were both caught on video in Milton.

The brazen robbery led to multiple hold and secures at nearby schools and ended with a crash into a police cruiser.

The incident began around 12:30 p.m. yesterday (Feb. 15) when three people entered the Bonafide Compounding Pharmacy in the area of Britannia Road and Leger Way in Milton, Halton Police said in a press release.

Cash was taken and the three people left the scene in a stolen, white Honda CRV driven by a fourth person, police said.

Warning: Viewer discretion is advised for the following video.

In a video taken from the pharmacy, people can be heard arguing about opening something.

“There is no way to open it,” one person says. “There’s a five-minute delay. You guys don’t know about this?”

There is a mandatory time delay on safes in all community pharmacies adopted last year in Ontario for crime prevention.

The video then pans over to a person lying on the floor with a person dressed in black, holding a gun to his head.


Shortly after the robbery, police found a Honda and there was a collision between a police vehicle and the vehicle in the area of Thompson Road and Main Street East, Halton Police said.

After the collision, all four suspects fled on foot. There were no injuries as a result of the collision.

A video shows the smashed police cruiser and a white Honda on Thompson Road.

Multiple schools in the area were placed in a hold and secure while officers searched for the suspects, police said. The search area also included the FirstOntario Arts Centre on Main Street in Milton.

Another video shows Bishop P. F. Reding Catholic Secondary School students being escorted out of the library. The students are told there was an armed robbery and the suspects have guns.

A suspect may have come into the library so police needed to clear it. A police officer leads them out of the library.


At approximately 2:30 pm, the hold and secure orders were lifted by police.

One suspect remains outstanding.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation is asked to contact the 1 District Criminal Investigations Bureau at 905-825-4777 ext. 2416.
