One man still on the loose following local pharmacy robbery
One man has been arrested, and a warrant has been issued for the arrest of the second man in relation to the armed robbery which occurred at a local pharmacy on June 20.
On June 24, a public notice revealed that two men wearing bandanas or cloths over their faces had entered a local pharmacy and stated that it was a robbery. One of the men brandished a knife as they demanded cash and narcotics. Once the men removed a quantity of cash and narcotics they fled the scene in a van, prior to police arrival.
On July 5, members of the Criminal Investigation Division attended the Ottawa Carleton Detention Centre and charged Matthew Armstrong, age 29, of Ottawa, with Armed Robbery, Possession of a Dangerous Weapon, Possession of a Disguise with Intent, Drive while Disqualified, and 2 counts of Theft of Motor Vehicle.
He was located and arrested in Ottawa on June 22 after having fled Ottawa police officers in a stolen motor vehicle taken from Cornwall. Further investigation revealed that he was one of the men involved in the pharmacy robbery. He remains in custody awaiting a bail hearing.
The second man involved in the robbery has been identified as Adam Martin, age 33, of Akwesasne. A warrant has been issued for his arrest. He should be considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with any information regarding his whereabouts is asked to contact the Cornwall Community Police Service.
