The RCMP Serious Crimes Branch has charged 34 year Dustin Robinson in relation to multiple pharmacy hold-ups, including the armed robbery of Sanduls Pharmacy in Black Diamond  

On March 30th a man holding a knife made his way into the dispensary and stole prescription medications and opiates from the Black Diamond pharmacy, before fleeing on foot.

Nearly a week previous, three similar incidences were reported from pharmacies in Airdrie, and Bragg Creek  

The RCMP, Ontario Provincial Police, and Calgary Police Service worked together after noticing similarities in a string of armed robberies between Ontario, and Alberta.

This Collaboration lead to search warrants for a vehicle in Calgary and a work site near Fort McMurray.

Warrants led to the recovery of clothing used during the crimes, and an abundance of prescription narcotics taken during the robberies.

Originally from Sarnia Ontario, Robinson is now residing in Alberta.

He has been charged with 4 counts of armed robbery and disguise with intent from Alberta, and 24 criminal charges related to a string of armed robberies in Ontario.
