Three men were arrested regarding to two separate bank robberies in Oakville and Burlington. Two masked culprits entered the banks, while a third waited in a car.

On Tuesday, November 21, 2017 at 9:50 am, two masked men entered the Royal Bank of Canada, located at 2025 William O’Connell Boulevard, Burlington. The men indicated they were armed and demanded money. The two men were unsuccessful in obtaining money and quickly fled that Royal Bank of Canada.

At 10:46 am, the same two masked men entered the TD Canada Trust, located at 2325 Trafalgar Road, Oakville. This time, the two men received an undisclosed amount of money and fled to an awaiting Mazda 3 driven by a third culprit.

The Halton Regional Police Service quickly responded to the area and successfully followed the three men to a commercial plaza located at the intersection of Burnhamthorpe Road West and Creditview Road, Mississauga. All three men were safely arrested. Officers recovered a replica firearm, the undisclosed amount of money, clothing worn during the robberies, the Mazda 3 and a small amount of marihuana.

All three men were transported to the Oakville police station where they were held in custody pending a bail hearing. The three culprits are expected to appear for a bail hearing at the Milton courthouse on November 22, 2017.
