Police seek suspects in Fas Gas armed robbery

RCMP are searching for suspects wanted in an armed robbery at the Burnt Lake Fas Gas on Monday.

Police said they were called to the gas station in Burnt Lake Industrial Park just west of Red Deer with a report of an armed robbery.

A male suspect went into the store while a woman waited at the door. The man went to the till and demanded money while banging his handgun on the counter.

The clerk put an undisclosed amount of money and cigarettes in bags and the man and woman, who were both wearing masks, fled to a waiting vehicle.

Blackfalds RCMP believe a third person was waiting in the vehicle outside.

It is described as a grey 2011 Chevrolet Impala and at the time of the robbery was bearing Alberta trailer licence plate 4BR094. The suspect vehicle is believed to have been stolen from Red Deer last Thursday.

If you have any information about this crime or any other crime please contact the Blackfalds RCMP at 403-885-3300. If you wish to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or by internet at www.tipsubmit.com.
