 A man was arrested by the Prince Rupert RCMP and subsequently charged by the BC Prosecution Service in relation to the robbery at McDonald's last week.

On January 29, 2023 just before 1pm, the Prince Rupert RCMP received a call about a man who had just robbed the McDonald's restaurant on 11th Ave E. Police attended shortly after but the suspect had already fled the scene. Statements from witnesses as well as video surveillance review helped police learn that the suspect entered the restaurant and waited in line to place an order. Once it became his turned to order, the man produced a knife and took money from the register, before running out.

Frontline members, with the assistance of the Prince Rupert General Investigation Section, conducted a thorough investigation which led police to identify the 43-year-old suspect. He was arrested by police on February 8, 2023 and subsequently charged with Robbery and Disguise with intent to commit and indictable offence. He remains in-custody at this time and is scheduled to appear in court later next week.
