A robbery incident at a gas station and convenience store on Marsh Street in New Glasgow has led to the arrest of Jeffrey Ryan Cosh, a 39-year-old man. The crime occurred on December 10, around 8:30 p.m.
According to the New Glasgow Regional Police, an employee at the gas station was threatened by a man with a gun, demanding money. After obtaining cash, the suspect fled the scene on foot. The employee’s description of the assailant, corroborated by video surveillance, was instrumental in the subsequent police action.
