Teen charged with robbery at Abbotsford gas station

The incident took place Monday on Fraser Highway.

An 18-year-old Langley man has been charged in relation to a robbery on Monday at a gas station in Abbotsford.

Abbotsford Police were called just after 10 p.m. that day for a reported holdup in the 28700 block of Fraser Highway.

The suspect, carrying a handgun, entered the store and demanded cash from two employees, ages 22 and 67.

When he was told the cash could not be accessed, the culprit demanded cigarettes, and quickly fled in a waiting vehicle.

Const. Ian MacDonald said detailed witness accounts from people who noticed suspicious activity at the gas station were integral in leading police to the suspect.

Lorren Willson-Lewis Marks has now been charged with robbery and the use of an imitation firearm in the commission of an offence.
