Police arrest suspect in gas station and liquor store thefts

Police have arrested a 32-year-old Duncan man who they believe is responsible for thefts at Cowichan's Liquor Plus store and Chevron gas station.

The two incidents occurred on Feb. 14 and 15. North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP believe the same man stole Hennessy cognac at the Liquor Plus at the Duncan Village on Valentine's Day, and then assaulted a clerk and stole cash at the local gas station the following day.

The man was arrested Friday.

"The male, who is known to police, was released on a promise to appear for a court date in late March," spokesman Cpl. Kevin Day said in an email to media. "Charges are being forwarded to Crown (counsel) for robbery and theft in relation to the two incidents. The male was released on conditions not to attend either the Chevron or the Liquor Plus."
