Police looking for man accused of robbery
Tips from the public have helped to identify a suspect in a robbery that occurred at Cowboys Casino last summer, and police are now asking for the public’s help to locate the wanted man.
Around 1:15 a.m., on Sunday, July 14, 2019, a patron of Cowboys Casino was engaged in a conversation with three suspects who convinced him to go to one of their vehicles. When the man got to the vehicle, it is believed that one of the suspects pointed a firearm at him and demanded his bank cards and PINs.
The victim then exited the vehicle and got help from a nearby police officer, at which point the suspects fled. Police located and arrested two of the suspects, but the other one was not found. Weapons were located and seized from inside the vehicle.
Investigators asked for the public’s help to identify the third suspect last November and received good information as a result.
Jonah COY, 22, of Calgary, is now wanted on warrants in connection with this case.
He is charged with:
- Robbery with a prohibited firearm
- Unlawful confinement
- Unauthorized possession of a firearm in a motor vehicle
- Possession a prohibited or restricted firearm with ammunition
- Careless use of a firearm
- Possession of a firearm without a licence
