Peel District Police thank the public for their “sharp eyes” that helped investigators arrest three youths involved in multiple armed pharmacy robberies.
Concerned residents called police on Wednesday after they witnessed suspicious men handling guns in Brampton’s Oneless Drive and Brisdale Drive neighborhoods, according to Peel Police.
Responding police arrested three men and seized two loaded guns.
Investigations revealed that these suspects were involved in at least eight pharmacy robberies in the Peel area between September 2nd and September 19th.
Police determined that several suspects robbed a pharmacy at gunpoint in Vaughan on September 19. The two stolen cars, believed to have been used during the crime, were recovered by some drugs and authorities.
“This was an excellent demonstration of the value of our community in responding to violent crime.
“Coupled with a coordinated police response, violent crimes have ended and two more illegal firearms have been removed from the streets.”
One man was identified as 18-year-old Lenroy Huggins of Toronto. A 17-year-old man and a 16-year-old man were also arrested.
They were not named because of the Youth Criminal Justice Act, which prohibits the publication of the names of young offenders.
Huggins faces eight counts of burglary and nine counts of criminal possession. His two other teenagers face several robberies and firearm crimes.
