Two brothers are facing charges in connection to an August 2022 masked robbery at a business in Saanich.
On Wednesday (May 17), Saanich police and the Greater Victoria Emergency Response Team located Jared and Micah McClure, who were arrested without incident.
Jared, 40, and Micah, 44, have been charged with robbery, possession of stolen property, and disguise with intent.
The Saanich Police Department said in a statement an extensive investigation led to the collection of several items of evidence, including video footage and physical items, that assisted in identifying both suspects.
Officers originally responded to a call about a robbery at a business in the 3900-block of Quadra Street just before 5 p.m. on Aug. 3, 2022.
Police said two suspects wearing Halloween-style masks entered the business and at least one employee was assaulted before the till containing cash was taken.
Another employee said employees were pepper sprayed while chasing the suspects, who headed south on Quadra Street.
Witnesses said they saw the suspects drive a Honda Civic hatchback, which was later seized as evidence.
“We would like to thank those in the community that assisted our detectives in this investigation, as this brazen daytime robbery created significant public interest,” Const. Markus Anastasiades said in a news release. “We are very satisfied to have solved this crime.”
