Boy, 17, arrested after Airdrie armed robbery investigation
A 17-year-old boy has been arrested in connection with a 2018 armed robbery in Airdrie, Alta.
RCMP responded to the scene at the Shell gas station near Coopers Town Promenade on Nov. 28, 2018 at 10:20 a.m.
Police said a male suspect went into the store with a handgun, demanded money and other goods, then fled on foot.
“The month-long investigation was greatly aided by Airdrie residents who provided the RCMP with video surveillance,” a news release said Wednesday.
The Airdrie boy faces six charges including robbery with a firearm, police said.
Cpl. Gina Slaney said the boy was released on strict conditions because he presents no risk to the public.
The boy — who cannot be identified due to the Youth Criminal Justice Act — is scheduled to attend court on Feb. 7.
