It appeared to be a busy night for the Saint John Police according to their media reported issued shortly after 8 am.
There were two armed robberies, one just before 6 pm Thursday at the Airport General Store when two young men entered the store, one claimed to have a gun and stole some items.
They were caught on video and a short time later two youth were nabbed and spent the night in jail.
Then this morning at 3:30 the Garden Street Irving had a hold up. A man entered the store and told the employees he had a knife and a pistol.
They gave him some cash and he took off on foot.
Within a few minutes there was a foot chase with police and the 36 year old suspect was arrested and taken into custody.
All three will appear in court today.
