Noble­ford tar­get of an­other armed robbery

Lethbridge Herald - - HOMETOWN NEWS -

Pic­ture Butte RCMP are in­ves­ti­gat­ing an­other armed robbery in Noble­ford

On Tues­day at 10:45 p.m., two masked men en­tered the Noble­ford Food Mart. RCMP say one pro­duced a knife and the other a ham­mer. Both de­manded and re­ceived an undis­closed amount of cash and cig­a­rettes from the store cashier.

RCMP say the sus­pects fled in a 1999 to 2002 Ford pickup, teal in colour. No li­cence plate was ob­tained.

The cashier and the store’s lone cus­tomer were not in­jured in the ex­change.

Pic­ture Butte RCMP, with the as­sis­tance of Coal­dale RCMP and Leth­bridge Traf­fic Ser­vices, made im­me­di­ate ef­forts to lo­cate the sus­pects and to ad­vise lo­cal cit­i­zens of the sit­u­a­tion. No ar­rests have been made. This store was vic­tim of such a robbery in Septem­ber 2016. The lone sus­pect in that in­ci­dent was ar­rested, con­victed and re­ceived a five-year prison sen­tence.

The RCMP would like any­one with in­for­ma­tion on the per­son(s) re­spon­si­ble for these crimes to con­tact their near­est RCMP De­tach­ment or Crime Stop­pers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
