Police said Cory Dodd, 36, was taken into custody on Monday afternoon, shortly before 2:30 p.m.

Members of the Problem Oriented Policing (POP) unit located Dodd at a residence in the 5400 block of Reginald Street — less than a kilometre away from the store that was robbed, and in the same area where a female suspect in the case was arrested on Sunday.

Police said the Major Crime Unit is continuing to investigate.

The robbery took place at a Circle K location in the 4600 block of Seminole Street on Dec. 5 around 6 a.m.

Store employees told police that two suspects — one male, one female — entered the store, with the male brandishing a weapon.

A quantity of merchandise was taken. The two suspects then fled and were seen getting into a black Chevy Malibu.
