A 33-year-old Ottawa man is facing a total of 12 charges after a convenience store on Jolliet Avenue was robbed.
Ottawa police officers responded to a call about the robbery, Wednesday night around 7:40 p.m.
Investigators say a man walked into the store, flashed a knife and demanded money, as well as lottery tickets. The suspect ended up escaping the area with some money and lottery tickets.
A few hours later, officers who had been searching the area, found the suspect in a stolen vehicle and arrested him without incident.
The description of the suspect in this case was similar to that of suspects in three other robberies which happened in the area earlier in the week.
Therby Franklin, 33, of Ottawa, has been charged with:
- Robbery with offensive weapon (four counts)
- Possession of a weapon for committing an offence (four counts)
- Breach of recognizance (four counts)
Franklin is scheduled to appear in court Thursday.
