Halifax Regional Police are searching for two suspects in a late-night armed robbery at a Dartmouth convenience store.
Around 11:27 p.m. on Saturday, they say two men entered the Needs Convenience Store at 100 Highfield Park Drive, demanding cash and cigarettes.
One man was armed with a firearm and the other wielded a knife.
“(They) directed the lone customer to lie on the floor and then they approached the counter and directed the employee behind the counter to fill a garbage bag with cigarettes and an undisclosed amount of money,” reads a Sunday morning statement from police.
No one was injured in the course of the holdup.
According to police, the suspects fled west on foot, and while a police service dog couldn’t track them down, it did find evidence related to the incident.
Police are still searching for both suspects.
The first is described as a heavy set man, who wore gloves, a balaclava and a dark jacket as he brandished the firearm. The second is described as a “skinning build” man, who also wore gloves and a balaclava, and white or light grey pants while wielding the knife.
Anyone with more information on this incident is being asked to call police or Crime Stoppers.
