Winnipeg police have caught up with two of three suspects accused of holding up convenience stores across the city.

Between April 2 and 15, the suspects allegedly robbed four convenience stores after concealing their identities, confronting staff with bear spray, and demanding cash or cigarettes. An undisclosed amount of cash and goods were stolen during the incidents.

The suspects allegedly robbed stores in the first 100 block of Killarney Avenue and the 1200 block of Jefferson Avenue on April 2, and a store in the 1300 block of Henderson Highway on April 4 and 15.

After an investigation by the Major Crimes Unit, with help from patrol members, police arrested two 23-year-old suspects due to their alleged involvement.

Stephen Toews has been charged with three counts of robbery with a weapon, three counts of disguise with intent, and three counts of unauthorized possession of a weapon.

Cory Legault was charged with four counts of robbery with a weapon, four counts of disguise with intent, and four counts of unauthorized possession of a weapon.

Both were detained at the Winnipeg Remand Centre.

The search for the third suspect is ongoing.
