Man charged af­ter dar­ing day­light armed rob­bery

The Compass - - TRINITY SOUTH -

A 19-year-old male res­i­dent of Har­bour Grace was charged with armed rob­bery when he ap­peared in Har­bour Grace pro­vin­cial court on Fri­day, Sept. 17. The de­fen­dant was de­nied bail and re­manded into cus­tody un­til his next court ap­pear­ance Oct. 18.

The charges stem from an in­ci­dent at the Shop­pers Drug Mart in Car­bon­ear the pre­vi­ous day.

Const. Chris Har­ris of Trin­ity Con­cep­tion District RCMP said the ac­cused “pulled a knife and de­manded money” from an 18year-old male res­i­dent of Car­bon­ear, who also hap­pened to be in the store at the time.

Po­lice re­ceived a call at ap­prox­i­mately 12:30 p.m. that a male was in­side the busi­ness with a weapon. Po­lice ar­rived on the scene shortly af­ter and ar­rested the male with­out in­ci­dent.

“ There was no al­ter­ca­tion and there were no in­juries,” Har­ris said.

The vic­tim was not an em­ployee of the store, but “it’s be­lieved the two knew each other,” Har­ris noted.

Aside from the armed rob­bery charge, the de­fen­dant also faces nu­mer­ous breaches of court or­ders.
