A Rocky Mountain House man is facing charges after a Caroline bank was broken into Tuesday.

RCMP went to the bank after responding to an alarm at about 7:15 a.m.

Police discovered that a man and a woman had damaged the front door and ATM at the bank and were able to get inside. The suspects then fled in a SUV eastbound on Highway 54 before police arrived.

No one was inside the bank at the time of the incident.

The vehicle used in the robbery was located abandoned a short time later near 47th Street in Rocky Mountain House. Police then executed a search warrant at a residence and arrested a male suspect.

Michael Jones, 34, of Rocky Mountain House, has been charged with break and enter, possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000, unauthorized possession of a firearm, possession of a firearm with a tampered serial number, and disguised with intent to commit an offence.

He was released from custody following a judicial hearing and will appear in Rocky Mountain House provincial court on Wednesday.

Rocky Mountain House continue to investigate this incident as the female suspect has not been identified.
