RCMP have a suspect in custody after three armed robberies at the Dairy Queen and 7-Eleven in Ladysmith.

The 25-year-old Ladysmith resident was scheduled to appear in court June 30.

At 10:41 p.m. on Tuesday, June 28, a man entered the Dairy Queen at 365 Davis Road producing a knife and stole a quantity of cash. During the robbery, the suspect also cut the telephone line to the business.

At the time of the robbery, the male was wearing a dark green hoodie pulled up over his head, with grey sweat pants and had dark grey shoes.

The man is also suspected to have carried out an armed robbery at the 7-Eleven on May 26.
