On January 24th at 11:10 AM, three suspects wearing hoodies and balaclavas entered the Bank of Montreal (BMO) at 1841 Walkers Line in Burlington each armed with handguns.

The suspects jumped over the counter and demanded money while pointing the firearms at bank staff and customers. The suspects were provided an undisclosed amount of money before they fled the bank to an awaiting vehicle believed to be a black Nissan Murano which was last seen travelling southbound on Walkers Line.
