Niagara Regional Police have arrested a fourth person in connection with a reported armed bank robbery and dramatic chase in St. Catharines.

Police say a 15-year-old boy from Mississauga has been charged with numerous offences, including armed robbery, flight from police and possession of property obtained by crime.

Three other male suspects — ages 15, 16 and 18 — were hit with similar charges last month after a Bank of Montreal branch was held up by a group of masked suspects on Jan. 31.
