Two men have been arrested in connection to a brazen daylight robbery.
Last August, two men wearing Halloween-style masks entered the Bottle Depot on Quadra, assaulting at least one staff member, and making off with the store’s register.
When they fled, one of the men bear-sprayed an employee. They were last seen taking off down the Galloping Goose Trail.
Police searched the area for the two, but at the time came up empty-handed, until recently.

Thursday, the Saanich Police Department announced two brothers, Jared McClure, 40, and Micah McClure, 44, were both arrested in connection to the robbery.
They were both arrested on Wednesday without incident and were held in custody until their court appearance Thursday.
The two are charged with robbery, possession of stolen property, and disguise with intent.
Authorities say it was through the work of the Saanich Police Major Crime Unit’s extensive investigation that they were able to identify the two men.
“We would like to thank those in the community that assisted our detectives in this investigation, as this brazen daytime robbery created significant public interest,” said Cst. Markus Anastasiades. “We are very satisfied to have solved this crime.”
