A New Glasgow woman is facing a number of charges following a robbery at a gas station in Tatamagouche Friday morning.

Just before 6 a.m., the woman arrived in a truck at a service station on Main Street. After putting fuel into the truck, she entered the store and told the female employee she had a gun and needed money.
