THUNDER BAY -- The third time was one too many for a suspect who allegedly targeted the same convenience store for a trio of robberies within a week.

Thunder Bay police had officers with their community response team doing directed patrol in the Northwood area on Thursday night after a Mac's store on North Edward Street had already been held up twice.

The officers received a call for a robbery at about 10:15 p.m. and located a man on Ashland Street. The man was detained while other officers obtained a description of the suspect.

The 24-year-old man was subsequently arrested and is facing three counts each of robbery, disguise with intent and breach of recognizance.

The suspect appeared in court on Friday morning and has been remanded into custody.
