The Royal New­found­land Con­stab­u­lary (RNC) Labrador West Di­vi­sion has made an ar­rest in con­nec­tion with a re­cent armed rob­bery.

On Sat­ur­day, Nov. 10 at ap­prox­i­mately 9 p.m., RNC of­fi­cers in Labrador City re­sponded to a re­port of an armed rob­bery at Lake Side Con­ve­nience on Maple Cres­cent.

Wit­nesses re­ported that a lone male en­tered the store with his face con­cealed, armed with a firearm, and de­manded cash. The male fled the area prior to po­lice ar­rival with an undis­closed amount of money. There were no in­juries as a re­sult of the rob­bery.

A search war­rant was ex­e­cuted by the RNC at a res­i­dence in Labrador City on the evening of Thurs­day, Nov. 15. As a re­sult of that search and sub­se­quent in­ves­ti­ga­tion, 27-year-old Johnathan Payne was ar­rested.

Payne has been charged with armed rob­bery, dis­guise with in­tent, var­i­ous firearm re­lated of­fences, and breaches of court or­ders.

He was set to ap­pear at provin­cial court in Wabush Fri­day, Nov. 16.
