An ongoing investigation by the High River RCMP Detachment into a series of armed robberies has resulted in the arrest of a male youth from High River. The male, who cannot be named under the provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act, stands charged with 3 counts of robbery with a weapon and 2 counts of unlawfully committing an indictable offence while disguised.
The charges are a result of 3 separate robberies that occurred on December 3rd, November 27th, and November 9th 2014, all occurring at the High River Mac’s store.
RCMP would like to thank the public for their increased vigilance for these occurrences, and this arrest was directly attributed to tips from the public. The youth was held, pending an appearance in Calgary Court on Thursday December 4th, 2014.
