Machetes used in robbery

Two teenage boys have been charged with armed robbery after the McCulloch Station Pub Liquor Store was robbed earlier this week.

According to Kelowna RCMP, the two boys entered the store just before 11 p.m. on Tuesday night. They were wearing masks and carrying machete-type knives.

They allegedly demanded money from the register and took several bottles of liquor.

After smashing some glass inside the store, they ran outside and fled in a silver Audi convertible with an undisclosed amount of cash and liquor.

Police later found the two boys and arrested them.

The boys, aged 16 and 17, have since been released but face charges of armed robbery, disguise with intent, uttering threats and mischief.
