RCMP nab suspect after attempted robbery of Trail business

April 10, 2020 - 7:15 AM

The Trail and Greater District RCMP have arrested a 24-year-old woman in connection to an attempted robbery which occurred late Wednesday night.

On April 8, at 9:42 p.m., Trail RCMP officers received a report of an attempted armed robbery at a business in the 1100-block of Bay Avenue in Trail B.C. RCMP learned that a woman allegedly entered the business, displayed a firearm and demanded money from an employee, according to the RCMP in a news release.

The suspect fled the business after the employee advised the woman that cash was no longer kept on site, due to the current health pandemic, said Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey, spokesperson for the RCMP Southeast District. No one was injured as a result of this incident, he said in the news release.

Frontline RCMP officers responding to the call apprehended a woman, who matched the physical description of the suspect, near the Victoria Street Bridge located approximately two blocks from the scene. The woman was found with an imitation firearm, according to the news release.

The 24-year-old Trail woman now faces potential charges. She was later released on strict conditions, according to the release.

If you witnessed this incident and have not yet spoken to police call the Trail and Greater District RCMP at 250-364-2566.
