A St. Clair Township man has been charged in a pair of armed robberies that happened within three hours of each other on June 10.

A 64-year-old woman was robbed at gunpoint at an ATM on Trudeau Dr. in Sarnia around 5:15pm by a man wearing a black mask.

Around 8:20pm, a Corunna convenience store on St. Clair Pkwy. was held up by a man with a handgun.
