7-Eleven store in Williams Lake robbed by masked bandit

Shortly after 5:30 am on Nov 13, a lone Caucasian male entered the Williams Lake 7-Eleven while wearing a partial disguise and demanded money from the clerk.

He fled with an undisclosed amount of cash. Later that morning, the Williams Lake RCMP arrested Michael Lazaruk for robbery while wearing a disguise.

Lazaruk is presently in custody and will be appearing in Williams Lake Provincial court on Nov 21 in relation to these charges.

Lazaruk was recently released from custody on other criminal matters.
