Three suspects involved in armed robberies in Prince Albert, Jansen and Spalding which resulted in a province-wide search have been charged. 

On March 4 at approximately 3:15 pm a business on 6th Ave in Prince Albert was robbed by two suspects using a firearm. The Prince Albert Police notified the surrounding RCMP detachments of the incident and of a suspect vehicle.

At approximately 5:15 pm RCMP in Humboldt were called to a business on Main Street in the town of Jansen. Two males with covered faces and weapons in hand, exited the same vehicle described in the Prince Albert robbery and approached the business. However, the owner and staff saw the males approaching and locked the doors. The males tried to force their way into the business, but were not successful. The males then returned to the vehicle and fled the scene.

Then at 6:05 pm, it is believed the same males given their description, entered a store in Spalding. They were carrying a knife and sawed off rifle. A male patron was assaulted by the pair as he tried to disarm the suspects. There were other employees and patrons in the store at the time. The male suspects then fled in the same vehicle and it is believed the vehicle headed north out of Spalding.
