Media release: BPS Occ # 2013-1231238
Three adults are in custody in Bridgewater for allegedly robbing a Pictou County woman Monday night at 5:30pm outside the Shopper’s Drug Mart in New Glasgow. The woman was approached by two males who sprayed her in the face with an irritant then robbed of her purse. The two fled the area in a white Ford pickup truck driven by a female.
Subsequent investigation led New Glasgow Regional Police to believe stolen property was in Bridgewater Tuesday morning. The Bridgewater Police General Investigation Section and the South Shore Integrated Street Crime Unit became involved at that point.
Last night, these units supported by BPS uniformed officers arrested three suspects on Marlboro Drive and a vehicle was seized. Police subsequently searched a residence on Ron Street in Bridgewater. Stolen Property was recovered from the seized vehicle and evidence related to the robbery was seized in the subsequent search of a residence on Ron Street.
Two adult males will be appearing in Provincial Court in Bridgewater this afternoon at 1:30 pm. They are charged with robbery, wearing a mask in the commission of an offence, and two counts of possession of stolen property.
An adult female was held in custody overnight and was released on a Promise to Appear and an Undertaking with conditions for the charge of robbery and two counts of possession of stolen property this morning.

- Jayden Piercey , DOB: 881101 of Spectacle Lake, Lunenburg County
