Halton Regional Police are investigating a robbery in Burlington where two victims were robbed of jewellery outside their residence on Augustus Dr in Burlington.
Around 11:00am this morning, four males pulled up to the residence in a stolen vehicle where three got out and pepper sprayed the victims. They then stole a bag of jewellery from the vehicle occupied by the victims. The suspects fled the scene and dumped their stolen vehicle a short distance away. They were last seen fleeing the area in a small red vehicle.
A short time later there was a driving complaint on Hwy 403 where a small red vehicle with a very large rear spoiler was seen travelling at a high rate of speed. This vehicle was last seen N/B from Hwy 403 on Waterdown Rd. It has not been confirmed that this is the suspect vehicle from the robbery.
The suspects are all described as males, wearing dark clothing with their faces covered.
