RCMP have released a composite drawing of suspect wanted in the robbery of a convenience store in Kentwood.
The incident happened about 9:55 p.m. on Friday when a lone man walked into the Run’n on Empty convenience store at 100 Kent Street, brandished a knife and made demands of the clerk. The robber got away with an undisclosed amount of cash and lottery tickets.
