Police have arrested and charged a 28-year-old man in connection with Thursday night's armed robbery in Conception Bay South.

The man held up Mae's Variety in Foxtrap at knife point around 8:00, demanding cash.

Before fleeing the scene on a bike, he picked up the cash register — but dropped it.

Constabulary patrol officers cordoned off the area, and after a foot chase, were successful in apprehending the suspect.

The man has been charged with armed robbery, disguise with intent, trespassing at night and breaching a court order.

Police said there were no injuries reported during the incident.
