The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary has made two arrests in connection with an armed robbery that took place in St. John's three weeks ago.

The holdup occurred around 5 a.m. on April 6 at the Ultramar gas station and convenience store on Elizabeth Avenue.

The suspects demanded cash, and before fleeing the scene on foot, grabbed a quantity of cigarettes and lotto tickets. 

On Friday, the RNC arrested a man and a woman, both 22, without incident.

The man has been charged with armed robbery, wearing a disguise, possession of a dangerous weapon and breaching a court order.

The woman was charged with possessing stolen property.

Police have not released information regarding the type of weapon used.
