  • Security Footage Presented as Evidence in Armed Robbery Trial

    A man and woman accused in connection to an armed robbery at the Circle K location on Freshwater Road in St. John’s are on trial today in Provincial Court.

    The armed robbery happened in the early morning hours of December 11, 2018.

    The employee who was working at the Circle K on Freshwater Road at the time testified a woman entered the store and bought a can of Pepsi. He says it happened sometime after 2 a.m. when the store’s doors were locked. The employee let her in.

    In a surveillance video taken from the store, it shows the woman leaving the store, and holding the door for a man who walks in, and smashes the lottery display case with a bat, demanding cash from the employee. He then demands cartons of cigarettes, stuffs them in a book bag, and leaves.

    Police arrested and charged 45-year-old James Glasco and 35-year-old Amanda Maher as a result of their investigation. Both face charges of robbery, theft, and court breaches. Glasco is also accused of possession of a dangerous weapon and disguise with intent.

    The employee of Circle K—who had only been living in the country for four years—told the judge the robbery left him very scared.

    Two days have been set aside in court for the trial.
