Opposites are known to attract, but in Nanaimo, similarities appear equally enticing, at least when it comes to crime.
A statement from Nanaimo RCMP says officers had just arrested a suspect in a gas station robbery near the downtown core last Thursday, when another alleged miscreant took advantage of the situation.
