Charges in armed robbery
Charges have been laid against a Kamloops man in connection with an armed robbery in Juniper Ridge last week.
Derek Robert Beno Wiebe-Rosch is facing one count each of robbery and mischief under $5,000.
The 22-year-old was arrested moments after an incident on April 18 at the Juniper Market on Highland Drive.
Mounties were called to the store at about 10:40 a.m. after a man walked in brandishing a large piece of glass, police said at the time.
The man demanded cash and knocked over a number of items in the store before fleeing on foot.
He was located by police on a trail just off Highland Drive a short time later, having caused superficial injuries to himself.
