Man Arrested After Allegedly Robbing Same Gas Station Twice

Police have arrested and charged a homeless man for robbing the same Oakville gas station twice in less than 24 hours.

Marlon McLeod, 24, allegedly held up the Petro Canada at Iroquois Shore Rd. at 10:30pm Wednesday and again at 4:30pm on Thursday.

Police and the canine unit responded moments after the second robbery and managed to catch the suspect after a short foot chase. Although McLeod claimed to have been armed with a gun, no weapon was found in the area.

McLeod was scheduled to appear in court on Friday.
