Police say one person has been charged after an armed robbery in the St. George area.

It happened at a business on Main Street in Upper Letang around 2:20 p.m. Monday.

RCMP allege that someone waving a knife entered the business and tried to steal alcohol.

“The individual then fled the scene before police arrived,” Mounties said in a news release on Wednesday.

Officers identified a person of interest and arrested a 19-year-old man at a St. George home.

Police said they also recovered the alleged weapon that was used during the incident.

The suspect appeared in court on Tuesday and was charged with assault with a weapon and possessing a weapon to commit an offence.

He was released on conditions and is scheduled to return to court on Aug. 29.

More details can be found on the New Brunswick RCMP’s website.
