Convenience store capers come armed with a variety of weaponry so as to convince the clerk to hand over the cash – guns, knives, maybe a bat or a sword if they’re daring.
But a man wanted by police in Thunder Bay in connection with two armed robberies used a snow brush.
“This suspect is wanted for robbery and should be considered armed and dangerous,” a video released by Mac’s Convenience Stores says.
The description on the YouTube video says the suspect hit two different stores in the same day, both times brandishing “an automotive brush/scraper.”
The Snow Brush Bandit reportedly hit up both stores, located on Balsam St. and on Cumberland St., on November 21, 2015.
He is described as a white male, between 5’8” and 5’10” and around 170 lbs.
Surveillance video shows he was wearing a dark SPY Optics hoodie, dark pants, sunglasses and a beige brimmed hat.
It’s unclear from the information provided whether he brought his own snow brush or if he picked one up off the shelves.
