Fifth man arrested in connection to 2016 robbery

A fifth man has been charged by Bancroft OPP in connection to a robbery in Bancroft back in 2016.

Police report they have arrested Akeem Marcko Richards of Ajax in connection to the robbery at the Canadian Tire in December 2016.

The 21-year-old is facing robbery with theft, disguise with intent and forcible confinement charges.

He was held pending a bail hearing earlier this month.

Four males had already been arrested and appeared in court regarding the charges.

Police say the robbery occurred at approximately 8:56 p.m. when two males, with their faces disguised, entered the business, demanded money and fled from the store on foot to a vehicle. An undisclosed amount of money was removed from the business and there were no injuries as a result of the robbery.
