The Compass - - SPORTS -

For the sec­ond time in a week, a busi­ness in the Car­bon­ear-Har­bour Grace area has been robbed.

Po­lice re­ceived a call on Fri­day, Jan. 21 at about 4: 30 p. m. that the Ready Cash Store at 46 A Pow­ell Drive Car­bon­ear had been robbed.

The in­ci­dent fol­lows a sim­i­lar rob­bery at the Irv­ing gas bar in River­head, Har­bour Grace that oc­curred on Mon­day, Jan. 17.

In the lat­est in­ci­dent, po­lice say a male sus­pect en­tered the busi­ness and de­manded money from the em­ployee. Be­fore flee­ing from the store, the sus­pect ob­tained an undis­closed quan­tity of cash.

It is also be­lieved that a small dark four-door ve­hi­cle was in­volved in the rob­bery.

The male sus­pect was wear­ing a black hooded sweater with a white sym­bol across the front, his face was par­tially con­cealed, and is de­scribed as ap­prox­i­mately five-foot-eight inches tall, medium build with no­tice­able lines un­der his eyes.

He was also wear­ing jeans and black leather gloves.

The Trin­ity Con­cep­tion RCMP is seek­ing the as­sis­tance of the gen­eral pub­lic.

Any­one that can iden­tify the per­son re­spon­si­ble or any­one that may have any in­for­ma­tion is asked to con­tact the Trin­ity Con­cep­tion RCMP or Crime Stop­pers at 1-800222-TIPS ( 8477).
