Just a little after 6:35pm yesterday afternoon, a lone male suspect armed with a knife, entered the I.D.A. pharmacy located at 1893 Appleby Line in Burlington.

The suspect demanded narcotics and money while brandishing the knife at the pharmacist. The suspect was given an unknown quantity of narcotics and money.

The suspect fled the pharmacy and was last seen running southbound on Appleby Line. There were no injuries sustained by anyone during this incident.

The suspect is described as a white male in his mid 20’s, 5’7″ tall, slim build, wearing dark pants, white/silver snowboarding jacket with a peaked hood, black mask and black gloves. He was carrying a cloth reusable shopping bag.

For the police this is one of those situations that can only get worse – a young man desperate for drugs and money – with an addiction that has pushed him to this limit.

Anyone who may have witnessed this male or has information that would assist investigators in identifying him are asked to contact Detective Sergeant Ron Hansen – Burlington Criminal Investigations Bureau at 905-825-4747 ext.2315 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), or through the Internet at www.haltoncrimestoppers.com, or by texting “Tip201” with your message to 274637 (crimes.)
