Two men arrested for liquor store robbery
Vancouver Police have arrested two suspects after a Burnaby liquor store was robbed at knifepoint Tuesday night.
“The victim was able to assist police with good information, which led to us tracking the suspects to Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside,” said Burnaby RCMP spokersperson Sgt. Gursharn Ranu, in a press release.
“Vancouver police arrested the suspects after a short foot chase – another good example of how we work together jointly to keep our citizens safe.”
William Watts, 41, of Vancouver and is charged with robbery with a weapon. He was wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for being unlawfully at large at the time of the alleged offence.
Vancouver resident Gordon Tremblay, 41, has also been charged with robbery with a weapon.
Both men are well known to police and were to appear in Provincial Court Thursday.
