VERNON - Three people accused of robbing the Armstrong 7-Eleven on Valentine’s Day aren’t feeling any love from police.

Two men and a woman, all in their mid-20s, are facing criminal charges in relation to the Feb. 14 offence, in which a knife was pulled out.

The robbery happened just after midnight and the suspects made off with cash and merchandise. Two women working at the 7-Eleven were left unhurt, but shaken. RCMP caught up with the getaway vehicle shortly after robbery and arrested three suspects.

RCMP say the trio was scheduled to appear in Vernon court today, Feb. 15.

Angelina Donatucci-Urlacher, 26, is facing charges of robbery, two counts of possession of property obtained by crime, disguise with intent, and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.

Daine Vollmin, 24, is facing charges of robbery and two counts of possession of property obtained by crime.

Matthew Roy, 26, is facing charges of robbery, two counts of possession of property obtained by crime, and breach of a probation order.

“Quick action by our officers, and cooperation from witnesses and the public allows us to seek out and arrest those in our community that are causing harm, as was the case in this incident,” RCMP Staff Sgt. Cam Percy said in a media release.
