A man is in police custody after a robbery at the Shoppers Drug Mart on Joseph Howe Drive on Tuesday evening. 

It happened around 7:45 p.m. when a man entered the store and told staff he had a weapon before he demanded medication. 

The man then fled the scene on foot. 

A man that matched the description of the suspect was arrested a short time later and is being held in police custody. 

There's no word yet on charges and police said their investigation continues.
