A Mac’s convenience store at the corner of Dewdney Trunk Road and 226th Street was hit twice on the weekend by an armed robber who demanded cash and lottery tickets.

At about 3:45 a.m. Saturday, a lone male robbed the place, taking an undisclosed amount of cash, according to Ridge Meadows RCMP.

Then on Sunday, at 12:30 a.m., it was robbed again, with the perpetrator eluding a police services dog.

RCMP now are trying to figure out if it was the same man, given the descriptions are identical.

“Investigators are examining both of these incidents to try to ascertain if these were committed by the same person,” Cpl. Alanna Dunlop said.

“In both cases, a weapon was produced and the suspect threatened to harm the clerk.”

Suspects in both robberies are Caucasian, in their late 20s, with blond hair. In both incidents the suspect wore a black baseball cap, black jeans, and a brown shirt.
