Couple charged in drug store robbery

Two people are facing charges after a holdup at a drug store in Mahone Bay early last month.

RCMP arrested 23 year old Bianca Mercer of Shubenacadie and 25 year old Israel Melchisdek of Halifax in relation to the robbery at Kinburn Pharmacy October 5. A masked woman entered the drug store indicating she had a weapon and got some drugs. She fled in a van which was found after a crash in Dartmouth a couple of days later.

RCMP say the pair are facing charges in other incidents.
