Red Deer, Alta. – The RCMP have charged three people and recovered stolen property following a violent robbery which occurred at the Fas Gas on Gaetz Avenue on March 30.
At 3:30 a.m., RCMP responded to a complaint that a clerk was robbed by three males. The clerk was attacked physically and was treated on scene for minor injuries. The males fled on foot. RCMP responded with police dog services. A lengthy track by the dog did not lead to the capture of the suspects.
On an unrelated call to service about suspicious activity, the RCMP were able to link people in a residence to the earlier robbery. By 7:45 a.m., three males were arrested without incident.
Denver Deschamps (19), Evan Elliot Deschamps (24) and Eastin Louis (23) are all facing robbery charges.
