Police have arrested one man and are obtaining a warrant for the arrest of another in connection with a robbery at the Royal Bank in downtown Georgetown Wednesday afternoon. Halton Police responded to the Main St. S. bank at approximately 1:10 p.m., shortly after a lone white man had entered the bank and given a teller a note demanding money. The note implied the suspect had a weapon although none was seen. The man was given an undisclosed amount of money and he fled with the note to an awaiting vehicle. With the assistance of several witnesses who provided detailed information police located the getaway vehicle, determined to have been recently stolen from Mississauga, in the underground parking lot at a Park Ave. apartment building. After further investigation by the Halton Police street crime unit in Georgetown, and with the assistance of Peel Police, a man was taken into custody in the Dundas St. and Cawthra Rd. area of Mississauga.
At that time police recovered money that had been taken during the robbery, the robbery note and clothing worn by the suspect. Police say the man arrested was not the man who entered the bank, but police have identified him, and are a seeking a warrant for his arrest. Charged with robbery, two counts of possession of stolen property, and being an occupant in a motor vehicle taken without consent of the owner is Rodney Roger Bushey, 26, of Paisley St., Mississauga. Wanted for robbery, wear disguise during the commission of an indictable offence, possession of stolen property, operate motor vehicle while disqualified and three counts of breach probation is Andrew Aaron Lamore, 21, of no fixed address. Police say anyone seeing Lamore should call 911 and not approach the man. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 905-878-5511 ext. 2106 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222TIPS.
