Suspects flee with drugs after robbery at downtown Aurora pharmacy

Police believe the suspects were involved in a fail-to-remain collision on Hwy. 400 and Aurora Road shortly after the robbery yesterday afternoon

Police are looking for three suspects who fled with narcotics and cash after a daylight robbery downtown in Aurora yesterday.

Two hooded and masked suspects forced victims to an isolated area of the pharmacy at Wellington and Yonge streets and demanded their phones May 28 at about 4:30 p.m., York Regional Police said in a news release.

Narcotics and cash from a safe were stolen, police said. The suspects then fled in a black pickup truck last seen westbound on Wellington travelling at a high rate of speed. 

Police describe the suspects as Black males, 18 to 25 years of age, six feet tall, and with a thin build. They are all wearing dark clothing, hoods covering their heads, black cloth surgical masks, and purple latex gloves.

Shortly afterward, Ontario Provincial Police officers attended a fail-to-remain motor vehicle collision at Highway 400 and Aurora Road. The suspect vehicle was a black pickup truck, and police said the occupants were wearing face masks. Police believe the black pickup truck in the fail-to-remain collision is the same suspect vehicle involved in the robbery.

Investigators ask people to come forward if they have seen something suspicious in the area, have information about the incident, or have dash cam or video surveillance footage at the time of the incident.

Police ask anyone with information to contact the hold-up unit at 1-866-876-5423, ext. 6630, or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS, or leave an anonymous tip online at
