A London man and woman have been charged after a gas bar robbery in the city’s north end earlier this month.
On April 15 at about 7:30 a.m. a man entered a gas bar at 1845 Adelaide Street North. Police say he demanded money from the female employee and made threats to shoot her. The store clerk was not injured.
The man fled in a vehicle with an undisclosed amount of cash and property. Police say the car used during the robbery was stolen earlier in the week from a Mount Pleasant Avenue address.
Police arrested a 26-year-old man and 30-year-old woman Saturday.
The man is charged with disguise with intent, driving while disqualified, possession of proceeds of property obtained by crime under $5,000, two counts of possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000 and robbery with violence or threats.
The woman was charged with possession of proceeds of property obtained by crime under $5,000, possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000 and two counts of possessing a Schedule I substance, a drug classification that includes opium, morphine and oxycodone.
The man appeared in court Monday in relation to his charges. The woman has a court appearance June 4.
Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call London police at (519) 661-5670 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
