At 8:00 PM members of the Halifax Regional Police responded to a robbery that occurred in the McDonalds parking lot located at 645 Windmill Rd. in Dartmouth. 
The victim, a 35 year old male, had his vehicle stolen from him by a subject who threatened him with a knife. Police searched the area but were unable to locate the stolen car or the subject responsible. As this matter was being investigated police learned that a break and enter had occurred at the victims residence located in Hammonds Plains. Numerous items were stolen from the home. Shortly after the B/E was reported patrol officers and members of the HRP / RCMP Integrated General Investigation Section located the stolen car in the area of Lakecrest Dr. in Dartmouth. The vehicle was stopped and two parties fled from it. A foot pursuit ensued and one of the subjects was taken into custody. Further investigation revealed that items stolen in the B/E were recovered from the stolen motor vehicle. No one was injured during these events and it appears at this point that these incidents were not random in nature.
