Nine people have been arrested and police are still sorting out charges after a robbery at gunpoint in Dauphin.
Police say they were called to a Main Street hotel shortly after 8 p.m. on Wednesday night. A group of people — at least one carrying a firearm — had entered the hotel, assaulted an employee, and then stolen a quantity of cash and liquor.
The employee was not seriously hurt.
Culprits didn’t get far. Police were able to track them to a home on Fifth Avenue SW before 11 p.m., where they arrested nine people in connection with the robbery.
Officers from the Dauphin Municipal RCMP also seized a sawed-off shotgun as well as a quantity of cash and beer.
Charges have yet to be laid, as the investigation continues. Investigators from the Dauphin Forensic Identification Services and Dauphin Major Crime Unit are assisting in the investigation.
