A male is charged after two robberies which occurred on the night of Saturday, February 17, 2018.
On February 17, 2018, at approximately 10:12 p.m., police were dispatched to a reported robbery at a business on the 300 block of McDonald Street. The suspect demanded money, and threatened to shoot the staff. The suspect then left, without cash or merchandise, in a vehicle eastbound on McDonald Street towards Ring Road.
The suspect vehicle was located, unoccupied, at the on-ramp to Ring Road heading north. A 34 year-old male suspected was located nearby, arrested, and charged. The male was found to be intoxicated. No firearm was located, and it is believed that the suspect was concealing his finger to mimic gunpoint.
At approximately 11:00 p.m. the same day, police were dispatched to a service station for the report of a robbery. A male had recently entered the business, demanded money and merchandise, and took both. After causing damage to the store, the male left. It was determined that the individual responsible matched the description of the male in the previous business robbery, and merchandise taken matched with items found in the suspect’s vehicle. The 34 year-old male was also charged in relation to this event.
