RCMP Insp. Lawrence Aimoe, operations officer with the detachment, observed the driver and called for backup and proceeded to stop the vehicle that had two occupants.

Robert Wilkinson, 29, of Red Deer was charged with one count of robbery with a weapon and one count of possession of stolen property.

Wilkinson was remanded in custody and will appear in Red Deer provincial court on Thursday.

RCMP did not release anything on an armed robbery occuring at the mall until Tuesday.
