Police in Cranbrook have arrested a suspect in the armed robbery of the Shell gas station in the 1700-Block of Cranbrook Street North.
Police were called to the gas station on Sept. 18 at around 6:30 p.m., after a man produced a handgun, demanded items from the clerk and fled the area.
“Hard work and dedication by the Cranbrook RCMP identified the suspect,” said Cst. Katie Forgeron.
“On September 26th, a local citizen located the individual and advised RCMP of his whereabouts. He was taken into custody without incident.”
Brian Clarence Holladay, a 28-year-old resident of Trail, remains in custody and has been charged with Robbery and one charge of Breach of Release Order.
“We would like to thank local businesses who assisted the RCMP in providing CCTV footage, which led to RCMP identifying the suspect,” added Forgeron.
Police are still investigating the incident and are asking anyone who may have witnessed the robbery or may have dashcam footage from the area of the gas station between 6 P.M. and 7 P.M. on Sept. 18 to contact the local detachment at 250-489-3471.
