On Saturday August 15th 2015 at approximately 2:15 am, a lone male suspect attended the Mac’s Convenience store located at Guelph Street and Delrex Boulevard in Georgetown. This suspect, who was armed with a handgun, approached the clerk inside the store and demanded cash and cigarettes. The clerk complied and turned over a quantity of money and cigarettes to this male. The suspect fled the store on foot in an unknown direction. Police responded and a search of the area failed to locate the suspect.

A short time later, at approximately 4:00am, a lone male suspect entered the Mac’s Convenience store located at 4021 Upper Middle Road in Burlington. The suspect, who was brandishing a handgun, approached a store clerk and made a demand for money. The suspect also took several cartons of cigarettes and packed them into a black bag before fleeing the store to a waiting vehicle. There is no description of the vehicle at this time.

The store clerks were not injured during either incident.

Investigators believe that the same suspect is responsible for both robberies.
