IROQUOIS – Police are looking for a single suspect in an armed robbery at the the Circle K convenience store in Iroquois. OPP constable Tylor Copeland described the suspect as a white male, approximately 5’6″ to 5’8″ tall, slim build, approximately 180 pounds, with very bright blue eyes. He was wearing a black baseball cap, a white and black bandana, black pants, and dark coloured shoes.

The robbery took place on December 12th, just after midnight. Police say the suspect entered the store with a weapon and demanded cash and cigarettes. The suspect fled on foot in an unknown direction with a quantity of Canadian cash, and tobacco products.

This is the second robbery to occur in the past month. On November 17th, two suspects held up the store with a weapon and demanded cash and cigarettes. That investigation is still ongoing.
