Investigators in the General Investigation Section of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division have charged three people following an early morning robbery in Dartmouth.
At 4:47 a.m. on November 22, police received a call of a robbery on Primrose Street in Dartmouth. A 27-year-old man had arranged to meet a woman at this location around 4 a.m. When the man entered an apartment with the woman, two masked men entered the room, both carrying knives, and one had what the victim believed to be a gun in his waistband. The suspects took a sum of money and some personnel items from the victim. The suspects then escorted the victim out of the apartment and told him to leave. The victim drove away and called police from another location. No one was injured during the robbery and this is not believed to be a random act.
Patrol, K9 and Emergency Response members attended the apartment and set up containment. At approximately 6:30 a.m., the occupants complied with the officers’ direction and exited the apartment. Four men and two women were arrested without incident and taken into custody. Two men and a women have been released without charges. A search warrant was executed this afternoon at the apartment.
A 19-year-old woman from Dartmouth has been charged with one count each of robbery with a firearm and conspiracy to commit robbery. A 21-year-old man and a 23-year-old man, both of Dartmouth, have been charged with one count each of robbery with a firearm, disguise with intent, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, conspiracy to commit robbery, uttering threats and two counts each of carrying a concealed weapon. All three are scheduled to appear in Dartmouth Provincial Court tomorrow.
