Ontario police are asking for the public’s help in identifying suspects alleged to have made off with drugs and cash during an armed robbery at an unidentified business last week.

The Caledon detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) tweeted that the business in Bolton, Ont., about 50 kilometres northwest of Toronto, was robbed during broad daylight on Sept. 23. “Two males entered the business while another waited outside in a dark sedan,” the OPP reports.

The three men fled the scene at a high rate of speed following the robbery, notes Just Say Caledon.

The OPP investigation is ongoing.

In nearby Mississauga, Peel Regional Police reported earlier this week that two males have been arrested in connection with a pharmacy robbery in Mississauga on Sept. 22, again during the day at 1:33 p.m. The suspects demanded narcotics and money and, after the victim complied, made off with the goods in a vehicle.

The suspects, who were located and arrested a short time later, now each face multiple charges, including robbery. “It is alleged that one male arrested was involved in a series of pharmacy robberies that took place between January and September of 2022,” the police report.

The Caledon area, for its part, has witnessed several big raids involving cannabis in recent years.

This includes the OPP’s discovery of a massive illegal cannabis farm and multimillion-dollar butane oil lab earlier this month that resulted in charges against two senior citizens.

And two years ago, the Caledon OPP found 235 cannabis plants, each measuring about 1.5 to 2.5 metres in height, that growers tried to conceal inside a fenced-in, outdoor area next to a greenhouse.
