SACKVILLE, N.B. – Sackville RCMP are investigating an armed robbery that occurred last night at about 8 p.m. at the Great Canadian Dollar Store on Main Street.

Const. Anthony Gaudet said a lone masked male entered the business brandishing an unidentified weapon.

“He demanded money, which he was allowed to take by the cashier . . . and he fled on foot in an unknown direction with an undisclosed amount of money,” Gaudet said. “The South-East District is investigating, but there’s no suspect at this time.”

Gaudet said a description of the suspect will be released after police finish taking statements and gathering information.

He added that the cashier did the right thing by allowing the armed robber to take the money.

“Your life is not worth the money in the till. Just let the person have what they want.”
