Both suspects have been arrested in a home invasion robbery that occurred in Clarence-Rockland on Wednesday, May 4.
The Russell County Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) are continuing their investigation into the robbery.
On Wednesday May 4, 2022 just before 8:15 p.m., officers from the Russell County OPP’s Rockland Detachment were dispatched to a home invasion on Laurier Street, Clarence-Rockland. The homeowner reported that two males, dressed in police gear, but not actual uniforms, entered the home claiming to be police officers.
OPP members located and arrested one male shortly after and the second male was arrested on May 5. The investigation is ongoing, with assistance from the Russell County Crime Unit. The accused remain in custody at this time.
This does not appear to be a random incident and the OPP do not believe there is any risk to public safety.
