Images of man involved in an armed robbery at Esso station released

Colchester County District RCMP is releasing images of man involved in an armed robbery on Robie St. in Lower Truro.

On Sunday February 20, at approximately 6:55 p.m., a man entered the Esso gas station on Robie St. in Lower Truro, where he threatened staff with a weapon while demanding that they open the safe. The man was given cash and cigarettes and then fled the scene.
