Armed robber in custody

Kelowna RCMP nabbed a suspected armed robber at his home shortly after an ESSO gas station was robbed at knife point Sunday.

The incident occurred about 10:30 Sunday morning at the station at Highway 97 and Leckie Road.

The suspect was able to get away with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police say they were able to identify a suspect who was arrested at his home less than two hours later.

A knife and a loaded sawed-off shotgun were seized during a search of the home.

The 23-year-old suspect appeared in court Monday charged with robbery, possession of a firearm without a license and careless use of storage of a firearm.

He was remanded in custody.
