Quesnel RCMP arrested three men in relation to an armed robbery.

On September 13, 2023 at approximately 3:34 a.m., the Quesnel RCMP responded to a report of an armed robbery at the west end of the foot bridge near North Fraser Drive. The victim reported being attacked by men armed with guns and batons. The men assaulted him and took his wallet and back pack. The suspects were associated to a white Chevrolet Silverado. Police located the vehicle and three men have been arrested in relation to the robbery. The suspects were located in possession of $6,300.00 in cash, 2 ounces of fentanyl, a sawed-off shotgun and a prohibited hand gun.

Two of the men are known to police and are being held in custody pending a court appearance. The third man has been released pending a future court date.

This appears to be a targeted attack as the suspects and the victim are believed to be known to each other, says Sgt. Clay Kronebusch.
