    They say nothing about him having a weapon. I'm surprised he didn't end up running from the building with 2nd degree burns and no cash. That coffee is HOT and would make a great napalm like weapon.

    I keep seeing smart aleck comments on here and this is NOT funny! An armed robber aiming a weapon at someone is never funny. Montague has become a junkie haven and it is so sad. With the break-ins and now this, how long before someone gets seriously hurt? Montague needs help!!

    I wonder if it was an inside job done by the rcmp? I mean it'd be their dream case getting to investigate at a Tim Hortons.

    I have noticed in most of the lasted B&E and Robberies the police is seeking the public"s assistance in helping them solve the crime do they also know where to send the cheque for solving the crime and doing their work.

      The police act as intelligence gathers, building a picture of a crime from collected information that you would never have on your own. Then they have to go and get the suspect it points to. See if you can do better.

      Ridiculous. They are using every means they can and WITNESSES are kind of crucial to most investigations. If it were your kid robbed I'm sure you wouldn't be focussing on such a non-event.
