On May 18, 2024, just after 9 a.m., officers responded to a call of a robbery at a commercial business in the 3200 block of Dougall Avenue. Through investigation, officers learned that an unidentified male entered the business, used a hammer to shatter a display case, and steal a large number of items. The unidentified male then fled the scene in a black Ram pickup truck. 

Approximately 15 minutes after the robbery, the vehicle was tracked to the area of Provincial Road at Howard Avenue, prior to heading southbound toward Walker Road. The truck was further described as having no front license plate, light-coloured wheel rims, a spare tire within the bed of the truck, as well as a trailer hitch.
