A 40-year-old Moncton man has been arrested in connection with three robberies in Moncton in the early morning hours on Friday.


RCMP say a man entered two Needs Convenience stores on Mountain Road and demanded money from the cashiers. The man fled on foot after both incidents with an undisclosed amount of cash, according to S/Sgt. Eric Larose.

A few hours later, police believe the same suspect robbed a man on Main Street in Moncton.  No one was injured during any of these incidents.

Codiac Regional RCMP identified, located and arrested the suspect on Fleet Street at approximately 6:30 a.m.

The man remains in custody and is scheduled to appear in Moncton Provincial Court Friday afternoon to face charges. The investigation is continuing.
