White­court RCMP in­ves­ti­gate armed rob­bery

The McLeod River Post - - Family, Farm & Garden -

On Septem­ber 30, 2017 at ap­prox­i­mately 3:00 am, White­court RCMP re­ceived a call of an armed rob­bery at the Qual­ity Inn Ho­tel in White­court. A man walked into the ho­tel with what a wit­ness be­lieved to be a firearm. He was wear­ing a mask, white gloves and grey cov­er­alls. The man left the busi­ness with an undis­closed amount of money and walked away in an un­known di­rec­tion. No one was in­jured dur­ing the rob­bery.

The White­court RCMP members with the as­sis­tance of the RCMP Po­lice Ser­vice Dog Unit were able to lo­cate nearby a bag con­tain­ing some of the money and the air soft gun used in the rob­bery. A red Dodge Cal­iber was seen en­ter­ing the park­ing lot and left shortly af­ter. Members at­tempted to stop the ve­hi­cle but were un­suc­cess­ful. It is be­lieved the male was picked up by the Dodge.

The male is de­scribed as be­ing ap­prox­i­mately 5”6” tall, 250 pounds, pos­si­bly Cau­casian.

The White­court RCMP and the Foren­sic Iden­ti­fi­ca­tion Sec­tion (FIS) con­tinue to in­ves­ti­gate.
