A 32-year-old man will spend 27 months in jail and is subject to a lifetime firearm prohibition for his role in a violent robbery at the Squamish Tim Hortons.
Christopher Morgado pled guilty to Break and Enter as well as Robbery on January 10, 2020.
The incident happened on December 20, 2015, when Squamish RCMP responded to a report of a robbery at Tim Horton on Progress Way.
Frontline Police responded to this incident and were able to secure the scene along with perishable evidence and provided assistance to the victim. Police found that Morgado and other suspects had tied up the lone employee and had stolen approximately $9000.
The Squamish General Investigation Section was able to gather further evidence and ultimately identify the suspects, which led to the filing of charges in 2018.
“This was a lengthy and complex investigation and because of the diligence of both the frontline officers who attended the initial scene and the investigators who saw through the entirety of the investigation, we now have a conviction on a violent crime that happened in our community,” said Sgt. Jeffrey Shore of the Sea to Sky General Investigation Section.
