A 39-year-old man on bail over a triple murder has been arrested in connection with an armed robbery on Sunday.
According to reports, shortly before 3:00am, Southwestern Division officers were on patrol when a woman reported to them that a man had just robbed her of her 2009 Honda Accord, while on Faith Avenue North.
The officers immediately went into the Faith Avenue area, where they allegedly spotted the vehicle being driven by a lone male suspect. The officers ordered the male to stop the vehicle but he sped off. When officers pursued the vehicle, the suspect brought it to a stop after a short chase and fled on foot dropping a handgun to the ground.
The officers pursued the male suspect and were able to locate and arrest him in nearby bushes. Police conducted a search of the suspect and found a quantity of ammunition in his possession.
The handgun that was dropped to the ground was also recovered.
The 39-year-old is in custody and helping police with their inquiries.
