Mounties arrest Campbell River robbery suspect

Police have arrested a 27-year-old man suspected of robbing a private liquor store last Sunday.

According to Campbell River RCMP, a masked thief entered the liquor store in the Willow Point Plaza around 5:50 p.m. He was brandishing a machete-like weapon and demanded money and cigarettes from the clerk.

The suspect fled on foot, but police were able to view the store’s video surveillance. On Wednesday, officers identified, located and arrested a 27-year-old man who recently moved to Campbell River. They also searched his residence and found evidence believed to be related to the robbery.

The suspect is facing multiple charges and was expected to appear in provincial court on Thursday afternoon. His name was not released.
