There Was A $70,000 Armed Robbery At Telus Mobility Store Last Night

From a Peterborough Police media release today...


On Wednesday, March 6, 2013 at approximately 8:40 p.m. two suspects, one carrying a handgun and the other a machete-style knife, entered the Telus Mobility store located on Lansdowne Street West. Once inside the suspects demanded that the two store employees working that evening hand over thousands of dollars in cell phones and tablets. Once the suspects were given the merchandise they fled the store, possibly a silver coloured vehicle. The store employees were able to call 9-1-1 for assistance. Police, including the Canine Unit, were dispatched to the store in an attempt to locate the suspects. Total value of the theft is estimated at $70,000.

Suspect #1: Male, black, approximately 5’6”, slender build, black bandana covering his face below the eyes, white Nike shoes with a black “swoosh,” cuffed jeans, dark jacket with zipper and dirty white gloves.

Suspect #2: Unknown gender and age. Wearing a dark bandana covering lower face, dirty white gloves.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Peterborough Lakefield Community Police Service at 705-876-1122 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

Woman Drives Vehicle Through The Door Of A Tim Hortons In The Patch (And Then Orders Coffee)

So we ordered a coffee in the Tim Hortons this morning on Lansdowne (the one in front of Sobeys near the Parkway), and asked one of the servers, What's up with the door being boarded up? (see pic at left).

She explained that yesterday morning during her shift, an older woman basically drove her car right into the store, then got out of the vehicle, came in the store (well, she was already in), ordered coffee, and sat down. The server said she (and the staff) had never seen anything quite like that before.

Obviously police were on scene shortly thereafter.

Hey, Where Did That Building Go?

What was once a Quiznos (as well as a candidacy office and a coffee shop) at the corner of Lansdowne and the Parkway is now no more.

No word on what's going there now.
