Two women are in custody after an armed robbery in Vanderhoof early Monday morning.
Vanderhoof RCMP responded to an alarm at a convenience store at 3:36 a.m. Upon police arrival they learn that an armed robbery had occurred at the store.
Two women walked into a business on Burrard Avenue, produced a weapon and demanded money. The women fled the store on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.
Witnesses were able to describe the women to police. This, along with video footage, led to the arrest of two adult women. Both women remain in police custody and are scheduled to appear in provincial court in Vanderhoof on Tuesday.
