SACKVILLE, N.B. – A Prince Edward Island man has admitted to his role in the attempted armed robbery of a New Brunswick pharmacy last week.
RCMP say Clinton Belcher of Summerside pleaded guilty Wednesday to a charge of attempted armed robbery.
The 29-year-old man will remain in custody until a sentencing hearing scheduled for May 23.
Belcher was among four men arrested after the March 14 incident at the Jean Coutu pharmacy in Sackville, about 48 kilometres southeast of Moncton.
Police say Belcher and another man threatened the clerk with a syringe and demanded narcotics.
Three other suspects are due in court Friday for bail hearings.
