in

Four boys from Brampton and Toronto are facing charges in connection with a robbery spree after they were arrested by Halton police.

A gunpoint convenience store robbery sent officers to Mac’s Milk at 10 Mountainview Rd. S. in Georgetown on Dec. 30 at 10:15 p.m.

That’s where four male suspects allegedly entered the store, pulled a gun, and bound the clerk.

The suspects stole cigarettes, cash, and candy before fleeing in a vehicle, say investigators.

The clerk wasn’t injured.

Officers found the vehicle at 10:40 p.m. and spotted the suspects near the plaza at 374 Guelph St.

Patrol officers immediately cuffed three boys, while a fourth suspect fled.

He was tracked by a police dog and arrested.

Four young offenders have been charged with a number of criminal offences and were held pending a bail hearing.

Investigators say they’re expecting to more charges to be laid — by police in other jurisdictions, too.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Det.-Const. Michael Rotsma with the 1 District criminal investigations bureau at 905-825-4747 ext. 2450.
