The man who robbed the Jimy Mac's Liquor Store in North Langley on Saturday night didn’t get very far.

Around 11 p.m., the male suspect entered the store, dressed all in black, with a bandanna covering his face. He pointed a firearm at an employee.

He demanded and got the cash tray containing a small amount of money, then fled on foot.

A police dog was able to track the suspect down the road north of the liquor store.

A man matching the description of the robber in the area was arrested soon after.

The suspect, a 29-year-old New Westminster man, was arrested and is currently in custody at Langley RCMP detachment.

Police believe there is a link between the Jimy Mac’s robbery and another two days earlier, on Sept. 29, when the Berezan Liquor Store in the 8300 block of 200 Street was held up at about 2:30 p.m.

Police are recommending charges of robbery using an imitation firearm, breach of recognizance and disguise with intent.
