The Southwest Booster - - NEWS -

Moose Jaw po­lice have ar­rested a man in con­nec­tion to an armed rob­bery in Swift Cur­rent last Fri­day.

Po­lice have charged Devin Bell­humer, 24, from Cal­gary with rob­bery with vi­o­lence fol­low­ing an armed rob­bery at the TD Canada Trust branch in Swift Cur­rent on Jan. 7.

Bell­humer is also fac­ing charges in con­nec­tion to a rob­bery at a TD Canada Trust branch in Moose Jaw this past Mon­day. His charges stem from a $2,000 rob­bery at Moose Jaw’s Main Street bank branch.

Po­lice re­port that Mon­day’s rob­bery in Moose Jaw was con­ducted in a sim­i­lar fashion to the Swift Cur­rent rob­bery. Some time later on Jan­uary 9th, Moose Jaw Po­lice ser­vice mem­bers ar­rested a male at the Moose Jaw Bus ter­mi­nal, and a sub­se­quent in­ves­ti­ga­tion re­sulted in the Swift Cur­rent charges.

Bell­humer has been re­manded in cus­tody and will make his next court ap­pear­ance in Moose Jaw on Jan. 25th.

The Swift Cur­rent City RCMP De­tach­ment notes that a num­ber of tips were called in to po­lice fol­low­ing the rob­bery, and they wish to ex­tend their ap­pre­ci­a­tion for this ben­e­fi­cial in­for­ma­tion.
