A man was arrested in Happy Valley-Goose Bay Thursday night for allegedly stealing beer from Skipper Joe’s Convenience store.
The RCMP say officers were called to the store about 9:45 p.m. and were told a man had entered the store wearing a hooded sweatshirt and had his face covered.
He took two cases of beer and ran from the store.
Police made immediate patrols in the area but were initially unable to locate the suspect.
A short while later police received a report of a male who was observed running down a path near the store with no shoes, carrying two cases of beer.
Officers located and arrested the man at a residence a short while later.
He has been charged with theft and was released to appear in provincial court at a later date.
