A man is facing multiple charges after RCMP were called to a grocery store robbery earlier this week.
On Dec. 8, at approximately 1:30 p.m., Lloydminster RCMP responded to a call of a shoplifter from a local grocery store.
RCMP learned that when the man was confronted about the shoplifting he alluded to the worker that he had a firearm.
According to reports, the man fled the scene in a vehicle, after being confronted.
Lloydminster RCMP responded immediately. After conducting patrols officers located the vehicle parked outside a local bar.
Harrison Carter, 27, of Onion Lake, was charged with robbery with a firearm, obstruction, and two counts of possession of a controlled substance.
Carter was released on $1,000 cash bail and is expected to appear in Alberta Provincial Court on Jan.20, 2015.
“The RCMP members worked effectively as a team, and were able to locate and arrest the man responsible with little time delay,” said Const. Grant Kirzinger. “The quick response by the employee and the ability to show the video right away played a large role in the efficiency of this investigation.”
