Three arrested after Dawson Creek store robbed


Three Dawson Creek residents have been arrested following an armed robbery at the Lone Wolf Roadhouse on Jan. 5.

Dawson Creek RCMP say a single male had entered the store waving a tire iron. The male had his face covered and left with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police say that they received various tips from the public and eventually identified three males that they believe took part in the robbery. They also say they believe the males used the stolen money to then buy crack cocaine.

The males are currently in custody until their bail hearings which are set to take place throughout the week.

Neither of their names is being released at this time.

Police are thanking the public for the tips provided and are asking anyone who has information in regards to another robbery at the same store on Dec. 4 to contact the Dawson Creek RCMP detachment at 250-784-3700 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
