(GODERICH, ON) – Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Major Crime Unit continues to investigate a robbery that took place in Goderich on January 23, 2023, at a business on Huron Road.
On Monday, January 23, 2023, at approximately 9:25 p.m., Huron County OPP was contacted by a store manager who called to report a robbery that had just taken place. Two suspects, a male and female had reportedly stolen numerous items from the store and loaded the items into a smaller SUV just outside the building. During the robbery, the male suspect brandished a knife and threatened the employees who had given chase after the thieves. The male suspect also threatened the employees with a gun; however, one was not observed. The vehicle was last seen travelling at a high rate of speed through the parking lot and eastbound onto Huron Road leaving Goderich.
