The RCMP has arrested a 58-year-old woman, who wrapped in a large blanket and brandishing a hammer, robbed a Dairy Queen in Invermere on Feb. 12.

According to a Columbia Valley RCMP media release, police arrested the suspect in Kimberley today, Feb. 14, without incident.

On Feb. 12 the RCMP released images of the woman, wrapped in a large yellow blanket and brandishing a hammer, who was alleged to have robbed a Dairy Queen in Invermere at around 8 p.m. that day. The woman had left the restaurant with an undisclosed amount of cash and got in a small passenger car before fleeing the scene.

The release says collaborative investigative efforts along with help from the public led to the arrest.

“The Columbia Valley RCMP wish to extend their thanks to all those who aided in their investigation,” Southeast District RCMP Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey said in the release.

The 58-year-old woman faces numerous potential charges and was released from custody under strict conditions. She is expected to appear in court at a later date.
