Two charged after robbing convenience store

Two men have been charged after robbing a convenience store on Ebb and Flow First Nation.

One of the pair was armed with bear spray when they covered their faces and entered the store, at about 10 p.m. on Sunday. They fled with an undisclosed amount of cash from the register.

RCMP officers from Ste Rose du Lac say they tracked down one suspect at a nearby home, and a police dog found the other suspect hiding outside the same home.

Michael Derek Hunter, 26, of Ebb and Flow, has been charged with disguise with intent, robbery with a weapon and identity fraud after allegedly providing a false name to officers.

Manuel Patrick Houle, 27, of Ebb and Flow, has been charged with disguise with intent, robbery with a weapon, possessing weapon for the purpose of committing an offence, three counts of failing to comply with a recognizance and failing to comply with a probation order.

Both were held in custody and were scheduled to appear in Dauphin provincial Court today.
