Man faces charges after robbery early Friday

Sean Michael Muir, 31, faces charges of robbery after a man entered a store and demanded cash from an employee early last Friday morning.

Saanich Police were called to a convenience store in the 4100 block of Wilkinson Rd. around 2:20 a.m. on April 25 after a man armed with a knife and covered face made off with cash. No one was reported injured in the robbery.

Investigators located and arrested a suspect around 9:35 p.m. in a vehicle.

During a search of the vehicle police located a knife that closely matched the description of the weapon used during the robbery.

 

In a subsequent search at an associated residence, they found clothing that appeared to match what was observed in video surveillance taken during the robbery.
