Two teens from Mississauga are now in custody following an alleged armed robbery at a convenience store in Dundas early Monday morning, according to Hamilton police.

Investigators say the pair were tracked down just minutes after they fled from the Mac’s Milk at 36 York Rd.

According to police, officers on the scene were tipped off by a resident who said they saw the suspects — a 15-year-old boy and a 19-year-old man — flee in a vehicle northbound on York Road.
