Suspect nabbed over 2014 Birks robbery with crowbars
Suspects used crowbars to smash counters in brazen daylight robbery
Police in Saskatoon say another suspect, the third of four, has been arrested in connection with the brazen — and violent — daylight robbery of a jewelry store in 2014.
The suspect, a 23-year-old man, was arrested by police in Montreal and will be transported to Saskatoon to answer to charges of robbery, wearing a disguise while committing a crime and conspiracy to commit arson.
A fourth suspect in the case, who is also from Montreal, is still on the loose.
According to police, four men wielding crowbars smashed the interior of a Birks store on the 100 block of 3rd Avenue S, on Feb. 14, 2014. They took off with a bunch of Rolex watches and other jewelry.
About 90 minutes after the robbery, a vehicle was found — on fire — near Bottomly Avenue and Osler Street. Police said the events were connected.
