Police snag 15-year-old Tim Horton's robbery suspect

A 15-year-old suspect faces charges in connection to the armed robbery at a Tim Horton's in Montague, P.E.I., earlier this week, according to police.

The RCMP arrested the boy on Friday and charged him with robbery, disguise with intent to rob, and breach of a non-custodial disposition.

On Jan. 8 the boy entered the coffee shop wearing a mask, showed the cashier a weapon and made off with some cash, said Sgt. Andrew Blackadar.

The Mounties brought in a police dog and reviewed surveillance tape during their investigation.

The teen is in custody and will appear in youth court in Charlottetown on Tuesday.
