Four Suspects Charged in Milton Robbery

Four suspects are facing charges after a cell phone store was robbed in Milton.

It happened on Aug. 29 around 10:55 a.m..

Four males went to the Rogers store at 85 Main Street E.

Three suspects entered the store — one brandishing a knife — and confronted staff.

A large quantity of cell phones was stolen along with cash.

No injuries were reported.

The suspects fled in a stolen vehicle, say Halton police.

A member of the public saw the licence plate and provided a description of the vehicle.

Plain clothes detectives caught up to the stolen car and a subsequent investigation led to the suspects being traced to Brampton.

With the assistance of Peel police, four males were arrested without incident.

A search warrant was executed at a Brampton home, with investigators seizing two stolen vehicles, cash, weapons and other evidence including the stolen cell phones.

All four suspects are from Brampton.

Deante Nelson, 19, and Saad Fouad, 21, plus two youths - whose names are protected under the Youth Criminal Justice Act- are facing a slew of charges including; robbery, breach of probation, breach of recognizance and possession of stolen property. All were scheduled to appear in Milton court on Thursday.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Det.-Const.Slade at 905-825-4747 ext. 2456.
