Calgary Police Service arrest suspects involved in four armed robberies
The Calgary Police Service Robbery Unit has arrested a man and a woman connected to a series of armed robberies in the southeast and northeast areas of the city.
Between May and July 2019, two suspects committed several armed robberies at multiple convenience stores, a fast-food restaurant and one financial institution.
Between Saturday, May 18, 2019 at approximately 9:30 p.m., and Sunday, May 19, 2019, at approximately 4:15 a.m., it is believed the same two suspects robbed two convenience stores and a fast-food restaurant at knife point. In each robbery, the suspects obtained cigarettes, cash and lottery tickets. The robberies occurred at:
- 7-Eleven located at 4527 8 Ave S.E.
- 7-Eleven located at 5320 52 St S.E.
- Subway restaurant located at 1440 52 St N.E.
Police arrested both of the suspects at the scene of the robbery at the 7-Eleven located at 5320 52 St S.E. Both suspects were eventually released.
On Friday, July 12, 2019, at approximately 1:45 p.m., a female suspect believed to be the same female suspect from the previous armed robberies, entered the Royal Bank of Canada located at 5269 Memorial Drive S.E. and approached a teller. She presented a robbery note that indicated she was armed and obtained an undisclosed amount of cash before exiting the bank on foot.
During the course of the investigation, the Calgary Police Service Robbery Team collaborated with several other CPS teams to identity a female believed to be involved in all of the armed robberies and issued a warrant for her arrest.
