Suspect denied bail

A man arrested following a convenience store robbery last week has been denied bail.

Following a hearing on Tuesday, a judge ordered that Charles Henry Macfarlane be detained on charges of robbery and disguising his face with intent to commit an indictable offence. The charges relate to the April 21 holdup at the Shell station on Springfield Road.

Around 10:15 p.m., police say a man brandished a machete at the store and stole cash, cigarettes and lottery tickets.

The suspect fled on a quad. Approximately a kilometre away, police arrested a 40-year-old man in connection.

Macfarlane is scheduled to return to court May 3.
