A man entered the Esso station at 2380 Hwy 97 North at 10:30 a.m. Sunday April 14, and robbed the establishment of an undisclosed amount of cash at knife point.
Investigation surfaced a local suspect who was arrested at his residence less than two hours after the incident occurred, said Sgt. Mike Cooke, in a press release.
Two search warrants were subsequently executed by police in relation to the robbery. Among other evidence, a knife and a loaded sawed-off shotgun were seized in the course of those searches.
The 23 year old man appeared in court Monday April 14 on charges of:
- Possession of a Firearm Without a Licence
- Careless Use or Storage of a Firearm
and was remanded into custody pending a future appearance.
