Four People Arrested After Armed Robbery at Somerset Hotel

RCMP Crest LogoFour people are in police custody after an armed robbery at the Somerset Hotel on Monday afternoon.

Pembina Valley RCMP were called to the hotel at around 1 p.m. after a man and woman entered and demanded cash from the employee. The male suspect took out a handgun during the ordeal before both of them fled in a stolen Chevrolet Impala.

Police soon found that the vehicle had hit the ditch along Highway 5, located north of Cartwright, near Provincial Road 253.

A 19-year-old Long Plain First Nation woman was arrested at the scene, while the male driver fled on foot into the adjacent cornfield. He stole a pickup truck from a nearby residence, but was immediately stopped by police. The 25-year-old man — also from Long Plain First Nation — was arrested.

Two other suspects were identified as being involved in the robbery and led police to the community of Crystal City. A 43-year-old man and a 25-year-old woman, both from Long Plain First Nation, were arrested.

All four suspects face numerous charges and remain in custody

Pembina Valley RCMP continue to investigate.
