An individual submitted to the Shell station on the corner of Lemire Boulevard and St-Pierre Street in Drummondville, shortly after noon Tuesday to steal beer.
The suspect got hold of a few cases of beer, and then came the shot with a clerk who tried to intervene. The individual then fled on foot before getting on a damaged bike.
The man was chased by a witness at a distance. Along the way, he would have dropped some items that might be useful to investigators.
Fortunately, it appears that the worker was not seriously injured. Patrol officers combed the area with the help of the dog in the afternoon.
At the time of this writing, they had however not been able to put the collar wrongdoer.
