On January 12th 2016 at approximately 3:18 PM, a uniformed officer observed several males walking away from a dark coloured Mazda Protégé with a stolen licence plate in a parking lot near Appleby Line and Dundas Street in Burlington.

It was determined that the same vehicle and licence plate was involved in several armed robberies where a firearm was used and as a result, a perimeter was quickly established.

HRPS crestMembers of Tactical and Rescue Unit (TRU), Police Dog Services, Community Mobilization Bureau (CMB), Uniform Patrol and the Burlington Criminal Investigations Bureau (CIB) worked together and ultimately located and arrested four male suspects inside a Starbucks.

That’ a total of five different police units – much mote to come on this case.

The arrested males were taken to 20 Division in Oakville for further investigation which is being conducted jointly by members of Burlington & Oakville CIB’s and Peel Regional Police Central Robbery Bureau.

A further media release is anticipated with additional information on the outcome of the investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Constable Mike Tidball of the Oakville Criminal Investigations Bureau at 905-825-4747 ext 2275, or Crime Stoppers “See something, Hear something, Say something” at 1-800-222-8477(TIPS) or through the internet at or by texting “Tip201” with your message to 274637 (CRIMES)
