A Calgary man has been arrested in relation to an armed robbery case from last September.
The Regency Best Western Hotel on Edmonton Trail in Airdrie was robbed Sept. 14 and two men made off with a large sum of cash. Police found an escape vehicle, a red Dodge pick-up truck, a short distance away.
Troy Saunders, 34, of Calgary, is facing six charges including armed robbery and theft of a motor vehicle. Airdrie RCMP is still looking for the second suspect.
A 53-year-old man is dead following a single-vehicle collision on Highway 2, Feb. 18. The incident occurred mid-afternoon when the male driver’s truck went into the ditch, just north of the Highway 581 overpass.
