Charges laid in two fast food restaurant robberies in Abbotsford

Charges have been laid against a 23-year-old man in relation to the robbery of two fast food restaurants in Abbotsford on April 29.

Shawn Michael Wollmann of Abbotsford has been charged with two counts or robbery. He has been remanded in custody and is next scheduled to appear Monday in Abbotsford provincial court.

Wollmann has no prior criminal charges in B.C., according to the provincial court database.

The Abbotsford Police Department reported last week that four robberies occurring between April 18 and 29 were being investigated.

An image obtained from surveillance video (photo below) was released in hopes of identifying the suspect.

All four robberies took place at fast food restaurants located in the 32400 to 32500 block of South Fraser Way.

On one occasion, a knife was produced by the suspect. The other three times a weapon was implied but not shown, police said.

The suspect in all four robberies was described as a Caucasian man, 20 to 30 years old, with a slim build and 5′ 7″ to six feet tall.

Const. Ian MacDonald said Wollmann is still considered the main suspect in the other two robberies and could be facing further charges, depending on the outcome of the continuing investigation.
