A pair of RCMP cruisers pulls out of Morgan Lane with the armed robbery suspects inside.

SACKVILLE, N.B. – Four men ranging in age from 23 to 57 years were arrested Thursday in connection with an armed robbery at the Jean Coutu Pharmacy in downtown Sackville.

Shortly after 2 p.m., two men entered the pharmacy on Main Street in Sackville and told the pharmacist they were armed with a syringe.

The two men demanded narcotics but fled when the pharmacist refused to do so. Police arrested one of the men a few blocks away.

The RCMP’s police dog service assisted in the arrest and subsequent investigation.

The second suspect was arrested a short time later, along with two other men, in a vehicle that was located in the vicinity.

Three of the men are from Prince Edward Island and the fourth is from British Columbia.

All four are scheduled to appear in Moncton Provincial Court today, March 15, to face charges related to the robbery.
