Dauphin gas station robbed with its own fire extinguisher

Police have charged a man with robbing a Dauphin gas station — using the gas station's own fire extinguisher as a weapon.

Officers from the Dauphin RCMP were called to the Main Street gas station at around 7 p.m. on Wednesday, right after the robbery was reported.

They say that a lone male had entered the store, grabbed a fire extinguisher, and demanded money from the clerk, who quickly opened the resgister and handed over some cash. The suspect ran off; neither the clerk nor a customer who was in the store at the time was injured.

Investigators quickly identified a suspect from the description given by the clerk and from viewing surveillance video from the store. They spotted him about 45 minutes later, at a business in the west end of  Dauphin and he was arrested without incident. A quantity of cash was seized from him upon his arrest.

Trevor Colin Severite, 30, from the Valley River First Nation, has been charged with robbery and was scheduled to appear in court in Dauphin today.
