A Whitby man faces numerous charges following a string of retail robberies in Toronto.

Four businesses in the downtown were hit between October and January according to Toronto Police. In each robbery, police allege a man entered the business while wearing a mask and approached the checkout count posing as a customer. He then pulled a gun and demanded cash and cannabis before running off with the goods.

The Toronto Police Hold-Up Squad tracked down a suspect and arrested him during a raid. They allegedly also discovered a pistol, narcotic drugs, and other evidence.
