The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary believe the man they arrested on Thursday night in connection with an armed robbery at a Mount Pearl convenience store may face additional charges in relation to other robberies that have recently occurred in the area.
The RNC said a man who was carrying a weapon held up a Needs convenience store on Barbour Drive around 11:30 p.m.
The man had entered the store and demanded cash and cigarettes, and left on foot.
RNC officers and the K-9 unit located and arrested the man a short time later, and recovered a quantity of cash and a weapon.
The accused was charged with robbery, possession of a weapon dangerous to the public and disguise with intent.
He appeared in provincial court on Friday morning. Charges for the additional robberies are to follow.
