Woman facing multiple charges in Olds store robbery
A woman who allegedly robbed an Olds clothing store and threatened to kill staff will appear in Didsbury provincial court on Wednesday.
Olds RCMP say a woman who entered a local clothing store at about 8:55 p.m. on Nov. 8 attempted to shoplift and was confronted by staff.
It was then that the woman demanded cash from the cash register and told staff she had a gun and she would kill them, police say.
After the woman was given the money, she fled the store on a bicycle.
RCMP apprehended a suspect minutes later while she was attempting to return to a residence.
Laura Nation, 29, has been charged with robbery, use of an imitation firearm during the commission of an indictable offence, disguise with intent, possession of a weapon dangerous to the public peace and two counts of theft under $5,000.
Nation was remanded into custody.
