Two more people have been charged in connection with a Victoria Day armed robbery in Gander.
Officers in Gander have laid charges of robbery against a Gander woman and a young man as a result of further investigation into the robbery.
Sarah Moores, 20, and a youth, who cannot be named under Canada's Youth Criminal Justice Act, will have bail hearings Monday along with Robert Zachery Paul, who was charged Saturday morning.
Moores is facing two counts of robbery with a pistol, while the youth is facing a single robbery charge.
Police say on May 23, someone went into the store, masked and brandishing a pistol, and took off with $320.
Early the next morning, officers say they stole lottery tickets from Mr. T's convenience store in the area and then returned to cash in the winning tickets with a value of $265.
At the time, RCMP Cpl. Mike Reidpath said he's never encountered anything like the unusual robberies.
Surveillance footage from the second store, although of poor quality, shows the suspect inside the business wearing what appears to be a black jacket, a mask and eyeglasses of some kind.
One image shows what appears to be a handgun pointed at the female clerk.
