Two suspects arrested in Burnaby robberies
Two suspects have been arrested in connection with a violent robbery at a business in the 5000 block of Anola Drive near Douglas Road and the Lougheed Highway on Monday and another earlier in the month.
Burnaby RCMP say at around 1 p.m., a woman entered the business and produced a handgun demanding money. No one was hurt in the robbery, but police were able to identify a suspect, and a day later arrested her.
She was arrested with a male who possessed a loaded handgun. Both have been linked to an earlier robbery at a convenience store in the 200 block of Holdom Avenue on April 10.
The woman, a 33-year-old Burnaby resident, is facing two charges of armed robbery and the man, a 25-year-old Burnaby resident, is facing one charge of armed robbery.
