Many charged after armed robbery in Dauphin

Police have charged six people, and will probably lay charges against a seventh, following a gunpoint robbery in Dauphin that was first reported yesterday.

One of the men allegedly involved was also wanted on a Canada-wide arrest warrant.

The robbery, at a Main Street hotel in that city, happened about 8 p.m. on Wednesday night. A large group of people entered the hotel, assaulted an employee (who wasn't seriously hurt) and made off with cash and liquor. At least one person was armed with a firearm.

Just a few hours later, RCMP officers with a search warrant raided a Dauphin home on Fifth Avenue SW., where they were able to seize a quantity of cash and beer and a sawed-off shotgun. They also found a small amount of cocaine, and in total they arrested nine people.

A half-dozen of them currently face charges.

Kyle Anthony Catcheway, 24, of Skownan, Man., Sheldon Donovan McKinney, 21, of Dauphin, Keith Douglas Racette, 18, of Bacon Ridge, Man., and Kyle Arnold Sutherland, 22, of Dauphin, all face charges of robbery with a firearm and of disguise with intent.

Kyle Sutherland was wanted by Edmonton police for failing to turn up at a halfway house in late December.

Christopher Lee LeClair, 23, of Dauphin, and Jeremy Dale Sutherland, 26, of Roblin, have both been charged with robbery with a firearm.

All six men have been held in custody to appear in Dauphin court on Monday.

Charges are also pending against a 28-year-old woman, who is the tenant of the home that was searched. She has been released from custody, but is to appear in court on March 11.

The other two people who were present have been released from custody and are not facing charges.

Police say that they continue to investigate.
