Perth OPP investigating variety store robbery

Perth County OPP is currently investigating a robbery that took place Wednesday evening at the M&M Variety Store in the Town of St. Marys.

Just before 9:45 p.m. a male suspect allegedly entered the variety store, threatened the clerk, and attempted to gain access to the cash register, he then fled the scene in an unknown direction.

An OPP emergency response team and a canine unit attended the scene but were unable to find their suspect.

The suspect is described as a white male between 20 and 40 years old, around 5’8” with a slim to medium build, and wearing dark clothing. He also has a “scruffy appearance”, say police.

At this point police do not have a clear idea about how much cash was taken, if any, from the register.

OPP are asking anyone with information to contact them or Crime Stoppers.
