IROQUOIS – The Circle K convenience store in Iroquois was robbed Monday night (Feb. 18), marking the fourth time in four months the shop has been the target of thieves.

Provincial police say two suspects entered the store around 9:30 p.m. Monday with a weapon and demanded cash.

The duo ran away with cash and cigarettes but were caught in the area and charged.

Kasey Molson, 34, of Cardinal and Travis Visser, 28, of Augusta Township are each facing two counts each of armed robbery, wearing a disguise while committing a crime, possession of a dangerous weapon and one count each of conspiracy.

Both are being held for a bail hearing in a Cornwall court.

Police have not said whether the two are considered suspects in the other three armed robberies, which happened on Jan. 18, 2019, Dec. 12, 2018 and Nov. 17, 2018.

But the number of charges suggest the two are implicated in one other armed robbery.

The O.P.P. SD&G Crime Unit is continuing its investigation.
