Man charged in New Credit robbery and carjacking: OPP

HAGERSVILLE — Provincial police say a man is facing charges for allegedly carjacking a vehicle in Hagersville and then robbing a store on the Missisaugas of the New Credit First Nation

Police say they got a call around 1:30 p.m. on Feb. 3 from a woman reporting her vehicle had been taken at knifepoint several minutes earlier.

Two minutes later OPP officers responded to a report that a man with a gun had robbed a variety store a few kilometres away on the New Credit Reserve.

OPP say the vehicle was located behind a building in Hagersville three days later and sent for forensic examination, which led to identification of a suspect.

They say a 30-year-old Norfolk County, Ont., man was arrested on Wednesday afternoon and charged with two counts of robbery with a weapon. (with CP files)
