Two charged, third on the lam after armed robbery north of Swan River

Swan River RCMP say they have two men in custody but are still looking for a third suspect after a Wednesday night armed robbery north of that town.

Officers were called to a gas bar on Highway 10 on the Indian Birch reserve of Wuskwi Sipihk First Nation, about 50 km north of Swan River, after a 911 call at about 9 p.m. on Feb. 5.

They say that three men wearing gloves and balaclavas came into the gas station brandishing metal poles of some type. They made off with the cash register and an undisclosed amount of cash. No injuries were reported in the robbery.

Later that night, police say their investigation led them to arrest two of the men believed responsible, but a third man is still at large.

Charged with robbery with a weapon, wearing a criminal disguise and other related charges are 29-year-old Joseph George Brass of Indian Birch reserve and 28-year-old Johnny Stewart Cook of Shoal Lake reserve.

They've been remanded into custody to appear in Dauphin court on Feb. 10.

Swan River RCMP Investigation continues in conjunction with Dauphin Major Crimes unit.
