Hanover | by Robyn Garvey  

Deputy Police Chief George Hebblethwaite says the suspect was wearing a bandana that concealed his face.

On Sunday (December 8th) evening at 8:30 pm officers on patrol located a suspicious male in Hanover's Industrial Park.

Deputy Police Chief George Hebblethwaite says the suspect was wearing a bandana that concealed his face.

The investigation determined the suspect was wanted in connection with a street robbery in the downtown core of Hanover, where a victim had their cell phone and other items stolen during an early morning mugging on September 25th.

During the suspect's arrest, officers discovered several break-in tools, methamphetamine, ammunition while prohibited and other items in his possession.

A second male suspect, who is currently in custody on other unrelated criminal matters will face additional charges related to the same street robbery investigation.

The name of the second male is being withheld, until he appears before the courts on his new charges.

The Hanover Police Service has charged a 30-year old male of No Fixed Address with the following charges:
Robbery
Wearing a Disguise
Theft Under $5,000
Possession of Stolen Property=20
Uttering a Forged Document
Fraud Under $5,000
Possession of Break-in Instruments
Possession of a Controlled Substance =E2=80=93 Methamphetamine=20
Possession of Ammunition while Prohibited
Breach of Probation

The charge of Possession of Ammunition while Prohibited relates to an October 2017 investigation by Hanover Police in which this same person says Hebblethwaite was charged with multiple offences related to drugs and firearms.

The investigation remains active and anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Hanover Police Service or Crimestoppers.
