An investigation involving four police forces has resulted in charges being laid in a series of Pharmacy Armed Robberies in Southern Alberta.

RCMP, Calgary Police, Windsor Police and Ontario Provincial Police came together in the investigation which resulted in 32 charges being laid.

The robberies took place at the Crossfield Pharmacy, Sandstone Pharmacy on 8th Street in Airdrie, Sandul’s Pharmacy in Black Diamond and at a pharmacy in Bragg Creek.

In each of the robberies, a man armed with a knife entered the area where narcotics were kept and stole prescription medications including opiates.

The joint investigation gathered evidence which included search warrants for a residence and vehicle in Calgary, and a work site near Fort McMurray. The search warrants were conducted on April 13th and 14th,  resulting in the recovery of clothing and items used by the suspect in addition to an abundance of prescription narcotics taken during the robberies.

Dustin Ross Robinson, formerly of Sarnia, Ontario and currently residing in Calgary, Alberta has been charged with 4 counts of robbery and 4 counts of disguise with intent relating to the Alberta armed robberies.

Robinson is facing an additional 24 criminal code charges in Ontario stemming from the armed robbery investigations there.
