At 12:40 a.m., officers responded to a report of a lone man who entered a business in the 1200 block of Queen Street in Halifax. The man placed a note on the counter indicating that he had a gun and he wanted money. The store employee read the note and ran to the back of the store. The suspect emptied a fire canister in the business, which he had with him, and ran from the business without any money. There were no physical injuries to any employees at the business.A K9-Unit attended the area and tracked the suspect a short distance away behind an address on Morris Street.
A 25-year-old man will be facing robbery charges this morning at the Spring Garden Road court house.
