A young offender has been charged with robbery following his attempt to steal product from the Happy's Liquor Store, 120-5th Ave., on Nov. 6 around 4:30 p.m.
The under 18 male was confined to the store by staff and his attempts to escape were foiled. A call went into the RCMP and they responded quickly with multiple officers.
The young man was arrested without incident.
"The owner of the store did, at one point, lock the door and he was locked in and couldn't get out," explains RCMP media officer Cst. Kary Moore. "He did try to get out by smashing the windows, but the police response was very fast so they were there almost immediately."
