Teen In Court After Trying To Rob Tim Horton's

A teenager charged in connection with the attempted robbery of a Tim Hortons on the weekend pleading guilty.

Just after 3am on Sunday morning, 19-year old Jacob Michael Byers came into the coffee shop on Landsdowne Avenue.

As he walked towards the counter, he put his hand in his hoodie so it looked like a weapon and said "Gimme the money from the till...all of it."

When staff told him they didn't have a key, he took off.

He was later arrested at a traffic stop. The woman driving the vehicle was detained.

Byers will make his next court appearance on October 23.
