Suspect in Conestoga Mall robbery found dead in Toronto


Waterloo regional police say one of the suspects in an armed robbery at Conestoga Mall last week has been located dead.

Police said the person’s body was found by Toronto police. According to police, they died of “a medical event.”

The robbery at a jewelry store in the Waterloo mall on Thursday led police to evacuate the building.

According to police, four male suspects entered the store with hammers and batons and allegedly smashed display cases and stole merchandise.

The incident saw a security guard transported to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Three suspects were located and arrested that day, while a fourth remained at large.

On Tuesday, Waterloo regional police said the investigation is ongoing and asked anyone with information to contact their robbery unit.

On Wednesday, they confirmed they were no longer looking for a fourth suspect.

"The death was not deemed suspicious so privacy issues prevent us from disclosing anything further," a WRPS representative said in an email. Top Stories
