An armed robbery suspect is being sought by Sylvan Lake RCMP after a local convenience store was held up by a man with a handgun.
On Friday, just after 10 p.m., police responded to an armed robbery at the Bayshore Market in Chateau Suites on the lakeshore. A lone suspect had entered the store brandishing a handgun and demanding cash from the clerk.
