The Halton Regional Police Service arrested four males in connection to theft of alcohol from the LCBO in the City of Burlington on the 25th of March 2020.

Thieves decided to stock up early on their Christmas Cheer - break into LCBO and run off with 70 bottles.

The LCBO looked like an easy target for four thieves- vigilant staff and customers got a license plate number – police arrested the four shortly after.

Three males entered the LCBO on Appleby Line just before 4pm wearing bandanas over their faces while carrying cloth style shopping bags.

The masked males proceeded to load their bags with various bottles of alcohol. A fourth male was waiting outside the store in a Blue Dodge Caravan and proceeded to flee the area once the other males exited the LCBO.

Witnesses at the LCBO provided a description of the Dodge Caravan and licence plate to police.

Police officers attended the area and quickly conducted a traffic stop on the suspect vehicle. All four males were arrested without incident a short distance away from the LCBO.

The following individuals have been charged with one count of Theft under $5000:

• Tristan Bird (18 years) of Toronto
• Ivan Bird (47 years) of Toronto
• Miguel Soto (39 years) of St. Catharines
• Michael Moore (39 years) of Toronto

All parties were released on an Undertaking.
