Shopping Bag Disguise Robber Arrested
The gas bar robber you heard about yesterday on AM800 news is now in custody.
Monday evening at 9:20 Windsor police were dispatched to a gas bar on Howard Avenue near Grand Marais Road for a robbery.
Video shows a male suspect approaching the entrance with a black reusable shopping bag on his head with eye holes cut out.
Police say there was a customer in the store which may have caused the suspect to remove the bag from his head resulting in his identity being revealed for a brief moment before he left.
Police say the same suspect returned to the store a few minutes later with is identity concealed with the same shopping bag.
The suspect approached the front counter and waved a sharp object similar to scissors and demanded money and cigarettes.
Officers on an unrelated call in the same area last night spotted a man matching the suspect.
They made an arrest and in a search turned up suspected fentanyl and methamphetamine as well as items taken in the Monday robbery.
47-year-old Mark Carriere faces numerous charges including robbery with a weapon, concealing or disguising with intent and possession of drugs and stolen property.
