Police have arrested one of two suspects from the most recent robbery at the West Park Fas Gas in Red Deer.

Red Deer City RCMP allege that late in the evening of Tuesday, Sept. 24, a man threatened to beat the clerk after a woman he was with was caught stealing some lighters.

Police have arrested and charged the woman alleged to have been involved in the more recent event. Karla Lynn Pittman, 28, made her first appearance in Red Deer provincial court on Monday via closed-circuit TV from the Red Deer Remand Centre.

She reserved her plea on charges including theft and breaching release conditions. She is due back in court on Wednesday.

Police continue to search for the man who was with her.

It was the second incident at the store in less than two weeks. On Sept. 11, store clerk Jaysen Arancon Reyes, 26, suffered gunshot wounds to his face and hands during a robbery.

The suspects arrested in connection with the Sept. 11 incident are also due in court on Wednesday.

Jeffrey Lyle Geary is charged with attempted murder, armed robbery and numerous weapons offences. Eric Michael Ayotte, 29, is charged with armed robbery. Both men remain in custody pending the outcome of their bail hearings.

Parkland Fuel Corp., owner of Fas Gas service stations and convenience stores, is reviewing its safety and security measures in light of recent robberies at the store.
