Morning Brew: ATM theft suspects on video, hospital robbery suspect treated in hospital, parking enforcement officer assaulted in Greektown, U of T students approve fee hikes, spring has sprung

Video seems to be playing a key role in apprehending crime suspects lately. Police have released images from surveillance camera footage at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre that depicts two suspects (involved in a gutsy ATM smash and grab on Feb 20th) clearly enough that they'll likely be identified.

One of the two accused in the recent hospital deathbed jewelry robbery that disgusted the public was treated and released from hospital after allegedly earning facial injuries while in police custody. Both men are in in custody and are facing several charges including theft, conspiracy, and drug related offences.

When you get a parking ticket, you can't help but get a little peeved, and although there have been times that you feel like clocking the parking enforcement officer, you don't because you know it's wrong and will land you in a heap of trouble. In Greektown yesterday, a driver who was being cautioned by a parking officer after nearly hitting pedestrians, got road ragey and assaulted the officer before speeding away. Witnesses snapped a photo of the car and have a decent description of the suspect.

University of Toronto students have voted in favour of approving student fee hikes in order to pitch in $30-million of the required $171-million build a new state-of-the-art athletics and recreation facility (to be used during the 2015 Pan Am Games). The vote wasn't without controversy though, with some complaining about misinformation being a key factor in swaying opinion.

Although it's officially spring, things aren't so green out there quite yet. But plant life is vibrant and blooming at Allan Gardens, and in a rare photo-heavy news piece, CityNews takes us inside for a look.
