Police have arrested multiple robbery suspect Jo’Ram Rigby on new charges involving a firearm, police said Jan. 29.
Rigby, 27, was wanted in connection with a report of possession of a firearm and vehicle interference that occurred on Wednesday, Jan. 26.
After a Crime Stoppers most wanted poster was widely circulated last week saying he was armed and dangerous, Rigby was picked up without incident, police said.
Rigby was free on bail on charges in two separate incidents.
He was one of four charged in the Feb. 9 robbery of the Petro Plus service station on Millennium Highway.
Rigby also is facing charges for the July 10 robbery of the Jai’s jewelry store in Grace Bay.
