On April 15th at approximately 11:39 AM, Lacombe Police received a report of an armed robbery which had just occurred at the Husky gas station located at 5052, Highway 2A.

Upon attendance, Police determined that a lone male had entered the business, brandished a knife and demanded cash and cigarettes.

The male suspect obtained a quantity of cash and lottery tickets and departed the store and fled in a dark colored car which was being operated by a second male suspect.

On the 16th of April at approximately 2:10 AM, a Lacombe Police member was on routine patrol when he was flagged down by a staff member from Mac’s Convenience store located at 5001, 52nd street. The employee indicated to the member that an armed robbery had just occurred at this location.

Police determined that two (2) males had entered the store, brandished a firearm and demanded cash and cigarettes.

The male suspects obtained a quantity of cash, lottery tickets and cigarettes and departed the store and fled in a dark colored car.
