RCMP charge man in connection with robbery in Lower Sackville, N.S.
A man from Beaver Bank, N.S., has been charged in connection with a robbery of a business in Lower Sackville, N.S.
RCMP say that at approximately 9:30 a.m., on Monday officers responded to a hold up alarm from the business, located on the 600 block of Sackville Drive.
Police believe that the suspect entered the business, allegedly confronted an employee and demanded hydromorphone, a pain medication.
The employee allegedly told police that they were afraid the man may have had a weapon on him as he was keeping one hand in his pocket.
The suspect fled after receiving a quantity of hydromophone pills.
A witness reportedly provided a description of the suspect and what direction he fled which helped police in identifying him.
