Cochrane RCMP Arrest Suspect in Armed Robbery
On December 3, 2015, Cochrane RCMP were granted a warrant for the arrest of Avery Hunter (30) of the Stoney First Nation for the criminal code offence of Robbery under section 344(1)(b). The warrant for his arrest stemmed from an incident which occurred on December 1, 2015 in which it is alleged that Avery Hunter produced a knife and took a firearm from a 76 year old male of Cochrane, Alberta who had been hunting on the Stoney First Nation and had agreed to the sale of the firearm but had backed out of the deal. Avery Hunter was known by the victim. After numerous attempts to locate Avery Hunter he contacted Cochrane RCMP and surrendered in person to the Cochrane RCMP Detachment on December 9, 2015. Avery Hunter was remanded in custody and is scheduled to make his first court appearance on December 15, 2015 at Cochrane Provincial Court.
