Abbotsford robbery suspects arrested in Maple Ridge

Abbotsford Police have arrested two suspects in relation to the robbery of a convenience store on McKenzie Road last October.

On March 25, with assistance from the Maple Ridge RCMP, APD took Louie Sparvier and Patricia Wilson into custody and charged them with robbery, disguise with intent, use of an imitation firearm and possession of stolen property.

The Oct. 8 robbery happened just before 5:30 p.m. when a man entered the shop and confronted a 21-year-old female employee, brandished a handgun and demanded cash. The suspect fled on foot after being handed the money from the cash register.

This incident was the fourth business robbery in 22 days at that time.

APD Const. Paul Walker said the other robberies are still under investigation.
