Police Beat


Two teens are facing charges after two 7-Eleven robberies on Sunday.

The St. Albert RCMP received a call just before 7 a.m. about a report of an armed robbery at the 7-Eleven store on St. Anne Street and St. Albert Trail. The two male suspects, who were alleged to have a knife and a handgun, fled the store with cash and left in a dark coloured four-door pickup truck.

While the RCMP was investigating the crime, they received a report of a suspicious, dark coloured truck in the Akinsdale area. A second call came in reporting that two males were pointing a firearm at a passing motorist in the same area.

Moments later, the RCMP received a third call reporting that the Akinsdale 7-Eleven was being robbed by two males with a knife. The suspects were seen running out of the store as police arrived.

Officers arrested a 16-year-old and 17-year-old without incident. Both the teens are residents of St. Albert and were released into the custody of their parents.

The police are looking for four suspects after a theft in a liquor store.

On Friday March 3 around 10:30 p.m. two women entered the Liquor Depot at 2 Hebert Road and started loading up a cart with liquor bottles. A short time later, two men entered the store and started walking around and taking bottles off the shelves.

After the men took what they wanted they ran out of the store. A short time later the women ran out of the store with their bottles.

The suspects were seen leaving in two vehicles. One vehicle was a dark grey BMW and the second is a burgundy vehicle, possibly a Sebring.

The four suspects were all described as aboriginal.

One woman was described as having an average build and dyed blonde hair. The other woman was of average build with dark hair and a facial tattoo. The women were described as wearing matching red track suits.

One man is described as being very short and wearing a black jacket and grey pants. The other man is described as tall and wearing all black. He had a partially shaved head and his remaining hair was dyed blonde.
