IROQUOIS – The Circle K convenience store in Iroquois has been the victim of an armed robbery for the third time in as many months.

Provincial police say someone went into the store with an “edged weapon” around 3 a.m. today (Friday) and held up the place, taking cash and cigarettes.

Similar armed robberies have happened on Dec. 12 and Nov. 17, 2018.

In December, Circle K security manager Sean Sportun told Newswatch they were beefing up security, including additional staff training.

The latest suspect is described as a white male, 5-foot-7 to 5-foot-8, with blue eyes and a slim build. He was wearing a black jacket with a black hoodie. The suspect was covering his face with a white cloth, police said.

The suspect was wearing black pants and black shoes with three white stripes on them.
