RCMP nab three in act of robbing Langford home
Apr 27 2012
Body armour, a Luger pistol, a revolver and masks were among the items seized this week when police arrested three men in the act of robbing a semi-rural residence in Langford.
The property turned out to have a separate building that was licensed for growing medical marijuana.
Members of the West Shore RCMP also recovered a sledgehammer and duct tape, and those arrested are facing charges that include robbery with a firearm and break and enter.
No one was in the home at the time.
The arrests came out of a partnership linking the West Shore RCMP and the provincial Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit, which targets people committing violent home invasions.
