The thief was arrested yesterday. The store’s security cameras provided police with clear pictures of him. He does not have a criminal record, Morgunbladid reports.
This isn’t the first robbery at Sunnubúd. In 2007, three men armed with a club and an ax barged into the store and left with money and tobacco.
