A man is expected in court Tuesday after an attempted robbery in Smithers last week.
RCMP say they were called out to a local business shortly before 1:20 Thursday afternoon when a man entered the store, went behind the counter, and started stuffing cigarettes in his bag.
When staff confronted the man, police say he became agitated, pushed an employee, and pulled out a knife.
RCMP arrested the man without incident.
He remains in custody pending a court appearance.
