A St. John’s man accused of committing six robberies and a theft — all within 2/12 months — is due back in court next week for a bail hearing.
Andrew Walter Carter appeared in provincial court in St. John’s today.
Lawyers agreed to have Carter return to jail April 24.
The 27-year-old faces 18 charges — six counts each of armed robbery and having his face masked, five counts of possessing a weapon and one count of theft under $5,000.
The robberies were said to have happened at Ultramar, Marie’s Mini Mart and City Superette businesses in the capital city.
Carter was said to have used a box cutter in one of the Ultramar robberies and a knife in four others.
Five of the six robberies were said to have happened in January and one in March.
The theft, from Sears, allegedly took place March 6.
