WINCHESTER – One suspect caught red-handed during an attempted robbery of a business in December in South Mountain has been linked to a bank robbery in here the month before.
The BMO Bank of Montreal branch at 510 Main Street West in Winchester was hit Nov. 13, 2015, shortly after it opened at 10 a.m.
Police had been searching for the suspects, who had got away with cash, before they “intercepted” two other suspects attempting to rob a commercial business on Main Street in South Mountain on Dec. 8, 2015.
Daniel Beauregard, 51, of North Dundas was charged with attempted robbery, conspiracy, wearing a disguise with the intent to commit a robbery and failing to comply with a probation order.
Brittany Tessier, 29, also from North Dundas was charged with attempted robbery and conspiracy.
SD&G O.P.P. have now charged Beauregard with robbery and disguise with intent in connection to the bank robbery in November 2015.
Another woman – 28-year-old Candice Moore of North Dundas – is also charged with robbery.
Beauregard was held in custody for a bail hearing while Moore was released and will appear in court in Morrisburg Feb. 2.
