A Thunder Bay man has been arrested following a robbery with a replica firearm at the Beer Store on Edward Street North, shortly before 7pm Tuesday evening.

When officers arrived they discovered an employee had gone outside the store and requested a male who was loitering on the property to leave. However the male produced and pointed a replica firearm at the employee, who fled back into the store and attempted to lock the male out.

• Robbery with Violence • Possession of a Weapon for Dangerous Purpose • Careless Use of a Firearm • Pointing a Firearm • Mischief Under $5,000 • Fail to Comply with Sentence

The accused appeared in bail court today and was remanded into custody for a future appearance date.
