Update Monday, Feb. 20 - Zachary William Worrall, 23, remains in custody in connection with the violent robbery at Savemore Pawnbrokers on Asher Road February 8. Worrall, who was arrested Thursday morning, will appear in court again February 27.
In a dramatic guns drawn take-down police surrounded a black SUV and forced two men to the ground.

The arrest went down Thursday morning at around 11 near Highway 97 and McCurdy.
On Wednesday, February 8, the owner of Savemore Pawnbrokers on Asher Road was struck several times on the back of the head and on his arms as he walked back into the store from taking a break.
A suspect stole a significant amount of jewellery and fled the scene on a bicycle.
According to witnesses the suspect had been seen in the Asher Road area over the previous two weeks.
The owner of the store was taken to Kelowna General Hospital.
