Armed robbery at Marystown business


Howard Mallay of Marystown is facing a robbery with violence charge after the Ultramar gas bar in the town was held up early Thursday morning.

Upon arrival at the business, RCMP officers learned a man had entered the store, took beer from the cooler and produced a knife to rob the lone male clerk.

The suspect then fled on foot with the beer, cigarettes and a quantity of cash.

Police used footage from the store’s video surveillance system to identify, locate and arrest Mallay, 34, without incident around 10 a.m. this morning.

He was scheduled to make an appearance at provincial court in Grand Bank Friday afternoon.
