Man Pleads Guilty To Robbing Convenience Store

Six years behind bars for a man who held up Shawn's Variety on Broad Street with a knife back in September.

The robbery happening just before noon on September 6, when 35-year old Robin Edward Dillabough came into the convenience store, held a knife to the owner's throat and left with $600. The owner was not hurt. 

Dillabough was arrested later in the day in the uptown, telling police he had been on a crack cocaine binge and needed the money to buy more drugs.

He plead guilty in provincial court, where he expressed some remorse for pain and suffering he caused and a desire to help help for his addiction while in jail.
