Balaclava Bandit continues to plague Timmins

Another armed robbery occurred at a convenience store in Timmins last night. The suspect, armed with a knife, robbed the Mac's Milk store at Victoria and McLean around 10:30 p.m. Timmins police sent every available car to the area, along with a canine team in an attempt to capture a suspect wearing dark clothing and a face mask. At least eight armed robberies have occurred at late night convenience stores in Timmins, since the first week of December. In almost every case, the suspect wore a face mask or balaclave and held out a knife. No arrests have been made.
