The first was Express Pawn Shop, robbed by a single male on March 2, 2015.

Next on the hit list was the Chevron gas station robbed by a male suspect the very next day, March 3, 2015.

The final robbery, March 4, 2015, was on a local taxi driver and its alleged two male suspects are responsible.

It was on March 4, 2015 that Cpl. Jodi Shelkie says a search warrant on a local residence was executed, which led to evidence being found that implicates two 23-year-old suspects previously known to police.

Shayne Stephen Hewer, 23-years-old, is being charged with two counts of robbery, possession of a prohibited weapon and failure to comply with a probation officer.

Robert Duncan McDonell, 23-years-old, is being charged with two counts of failure to comply with recognizance.

Police say further charges against McDonell are pending.

Both Hewer and McDonell remain in custody with their next court appearance scheduled for March 18, 2015.
