Early yesterday morning, a lone male entered the Esso gas station located at 6783 Guelph Line in Burlington and demanded money from the clerk while having his hand in his pocket insinuating a weapon being present.

Esso - Guelph and Derry

This Esso station seems to be a favorite with the robbers – held up yesterday and in July of 2011

The clerk complied and turned over an undisclosed amount of cash from the till to the suspect who fled North out of the store and out of sight.

No vehicle observed by the clerk and the clerk was not injured.

The suspect is described as:

male/Caucasian, 20-30 years of age, 5”3-5”6 in height, approximately 140-150 pounds, slim build, blue/green eyes and light colored facial hair (approximately 2-3 days growth). The suspect was wearing a black/white plaid scarf around his face, red toque with a “Hockey night” blue emblem on the front, black jacket with hood and black pants.

The same gas station was robbed in July of 2011. A light blue box pick was used as the getaway vehicle then and we asked if there was a video. Was there a video this time?

Anyone with information that would assist in locating the suspect vehicle or identifying the suspect are encouraged to contact Detective Phil Vandenbeukel at 905 825-4747 extension 2343 or Crime Stoppers at 1 800 222-TIPS (8477), through the web at or by texting “Tip201” with your message to 274637 (crimes).
