Winnipeg police have arrested and charged two people after armed robberies stemming from online sales.
A 27-year-old man was robbed of the jewelry he was trying to sell on October 29 when he met up with a seller at a public location in the 1700 block of Henderson Highway.
Police say he met a man and handed over the jewelry. When another man gestured to pay, he also took out a handgun and pointed it at the victim. Both suspects fled with the jewelry and money.
In a second incident, a 38-year-old man made arrangements to meet a woman at a home in the 300 block of Marion Street. Once inside, an armed man ordered the victim to leave, but not before the suspects stole his money and cell phone. The victim wasn’t injured.
Adam Gustave Daniel Deloaronde of Winnipeg, 23, was arrested on Thursday in the area of Arlington Street and Flora Avenue.
Police later located and arrested Laine Fischer, 28, who faces charges of armed robbery with a restricted firearm or prohibited weapon.
Deloaronde faces several more charges, including multiple weapons and robbery offences.
Both suspects remain in custody.
