A 19-year-old man has been arrested and charged following an armed robbery of the Deer Park Express 24 on Tuesday.

A 19-year-old man has been arrested and charged following an armed robbery of the Deer Park Express 24 on Tuesday.

Red Deer RCMP said a masked man armed with a knife entered the store on Davison Drive about 5:20 a.m. and demanded cash from the store clerk.

The suspect then departed in a blue truck with a tool box in the back, eastbound down the alley behind the store.

Thanks to the store’s video surveillance, RCMP were able to quickly identify a suspect and vehicle, and at about 1 p.m. the same day they located the suspect in the vehicle and made a traffic stop.

Jayden Riley McKean of Red Deer, who was also wanted for outstanding warrants, was taken into custody without incident.

A search of the vehicle revealed evidence linking the suspect to the armed robbery.

McKean is charged with armed robbery, wearing a disguise with intent to commit a crime, possession of stolen property, two counts of failing to appear and driving without insurance.

He is scheduled to appear in Red Deer provincial court on May 19.
