Bridgewater: Charges Laid After Robbery In New Glasgow

A trio of Lunenburg County residents are facing charges after a robbery in New Glasgow earlier this week. Police say two men stole a woman's purse outside Shopper's Drug Mart on Monday night.
The woman was sprayed in the face with a substance before the men took her purse. They left the parking lot in a get-away truck driven by a female. Further investigation led police in New Glasgow to believe the stolen goods were taken to Bridgewater. That information led police to Marlboro Drive where all three people allegedly involved in the theft were arrested and a vehicle was also seized. Justin Arthur Peircy and Jayden Piercy of Spectacle Lake have been charged with robbery, wearing a mask and possession of stolen property. Meanwhile, Rosina Ernst of Bridgewater has been charged with robbery and possession of stolen property.
