Two arrested in relation to robbery spree

Two 18-year-olds were pulled over Tuesday morning after a Mac's store was robbed

These two images were caught on camera during an Aug. 8 robbery of a Mac's store.

Police believe they’ve nabbed a pair of individuals that may have been responsible for a string of convenience store robberies.

Just before 4 a.m. Tuesday, a Surrey RCMP officer saw a suspicious male leaving a Mac’s Convenience Store near 160 Street and Fraser Highway.

Soon after, a report came in of a robbery at the store and the officer pulled the vehicle over.

The driver then sped off, toward 96 Avenue and 176 Street, where Mounties had laid down a spike belt to stop the car.

The driver of the fleeing vehicle tried to swerve away from the spike belt and hit the centre median.

Two 18 year olds from Surrey have been arrested.

They are suspects in the Tuesday morning robbery and are persons of interest in a string of convenience store robberies in recent months.

The robbery spree gained some attention when Mac’s Convenience Stores started a Facebook page showing still images and descriptions of people believed to be in the process of robbing their stores.

The last one posted as a robbery of the Mac’s Store at 14820 108 Ave. on Wednesday, Aug. 8.

The suspects entered the store, produced a knife and demanded the money from the register and cigarettes. The employee complied and the suspects left.
