Stettler man accused of armed robbery in court

Suspect accused of stealing a car at gunpoint last December

A man accused in a Stettler armed robbery has been released until his next court date.

Stettler RCMP said they got a call of an armed robbery at about 10 a.m. on Dec. 10. The victim had reportedly offered a person a ride to the Stettler area. When they arrived, the passenger allegedly pulled a gun, then told the driver to get out, before stealing the vehicle.

The victim was not injured.

Stettler and Red Deer RCMP identified a suspect and were searching for him when Lacombe Police Service found the stolen vehicle and arrested a suspect.

Morley Roland Savage, 21, of Stettler, is facing a number of charges, including robbery with a firearm, careless use of a firearm and using a firearm in the commission of an offence.

Savage appeared in Red Deer provincial court Thursday and was released on conditions. He is due back in court on Feb. 28.
