Upon attendance, Police determined that a lone male had entered the business, brandished a knife and demanded cash and cigarettes.

On the 16th of April at approximately 2:10 AM, a Lacombe Police member was on routine patrol when he was flagged down by a staff member from Mac’s Convenience store located at 5001, 52nd street. The employee indicated to the member that an armed robbery had just occurred at this location.

Police determined that two (2) males had entered the store, brandished a firearm and demanded cash and cigarettes.

The male suspects obtained a quantity of cash, lottery tickets and cigarettes and departed the store and fled in a dark colored car.
