Mac’s store robbed by woman

Less than 24 hours after the Mac’s Convenience Store at 2635 Quadra St. was robbed at gunpoint late Saturday night, Victoria police arrested a 19-year-old Victoria woman and a 39-year-old Victoria man at an apartment in the 2500-block of Quadra St.

The robbery happened around 11:30 p.m. when a woman entered the store with two handguns drawn and demanded money, cigarettes and lottery tickets from the clerk.

Police say the two guns, which were later recovered, were “very real looking replicas.”

The woman fled the store and apparently caught a cab with her male accomplice back to their residence on Quadra Street, say police, who are recommending robbery charges.

The pair made a court appearance on Monday.
