Suspect in 3 armed robberies arrested in St. John's
Police arrested a man they believe is responsible for three separate armed robberies on the northeast Avalon in November.
Royal Newfoundland Constabulary officers arrested the 24-year-old suspect and charged him with three counts of armed robbery, three counts of wearing a disguise with intent to commit robbery, and three counts of possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose.
The first robbery was on October 30 at an Irving gas station west of Pitts Memorial Drive on the Trans-Canada Highway.
According to the RNC, the suspect was armed with a knife and escaped with money.
The second holdup occurred on November 4 at a Marie's Mini Mart on Topsail Road, and the suspect again had a knife and made off with an undisclosed amount of cash.
The third robbery was on November 14 at Marie's Mini Mart on Fowler's Road in Conception Bay South.
During the third incident, the suspect had a knife and fled with cash and cigarettes in a black, four-door vehicle.
The suspect was picked up without incident and placed in jail to await a court appearance Saturday morning.
