Arrest for one robbery leads to charges for two others for 17-year-old

Waterloo Regional Police have not only charged a teenager for an alleged armed robbery of a convenience store in Kitchener, they’ve charged him in two other robbery investigations.

The arrest stems from the midnight robbery of a store around Westwood Drive and Westmount Road West from the morning of April 10.

Police said two suspects came in with knives, robbed the store and fled on foot.

A 17-year-old male was arrested Tuesday at his home.

Officers using a search warrant then allegedly found evidence from two other alleged robberies. Police don’t specify where or when those occurred.

He’s facing three counts of robbery with a weapon, three counts of disguise with intent, three counts of possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose and possession under $5,000.

Police add they’re still investigating and expect to lay more charges.
