On the evening of December 28, 2019, a dark grey Dodge Durango was stolen at gun point in Georgetown. Two suspects approached a victim as he exited his vehicle, ordered him to the ground and stole his keys. The vehicle was last seen travelling westbound on Argyll Road in Georgetown.
On December 30, 2019, at approximately 11:15 am, three masked suspects attempted to enter the Bank of Montreal (BMO) located at 1001 Maple Avenue in Milton. The suspects were deterred as the interior doors were locked. They were seen entering a dark coloured Dodge Durango which fled the area.
Investigation has determined that the Dodge Durango stolen in Georgetown is believed to be the same vehicle used to flee the scene from this robbery.
Investigation has linked the suspects and vehicle to other robberies that occurred on December 30, 2019, in York and Peel Regions.
