Mission Mounties make arrest in connection to recent robberies

39-year-old Mission man charged with robbery

A 39-year-old Mission resident has been charged in connection with three recent robberies.

Derek Fleet made his first appearance in Abbotsford Provincial Court Friday and was charged with three counts of robbery with an offensive weapon.

The most recent incident happened on Feb. 4. According to police, a lone male entered the store at the Esso gas station located at the corner of Dewdney Trunk Road and Stave Lake Street just before 8 a.m. and pointed a knife at the clerk. He received an undisclosed amount of cash and cigarettes and fled in a beige or gold coloured Nissan Maxima. The Esso gas station had also been robbed on Jan. 24.

On Jan. 31, a male suspect walked into Magicuts at the Junction Mall and without alerting other customers in the salon, drew a knife and asked for cash from the till. The man apologized for his action before fleeing with an undisclosed amount of money.
