Scott Kuebeck was arrested on Jan. 1 following incident at jewelry story

A robber targeted a jewelry store in Sevenoaks Shopping Centre on Jan. 1.

A man previously charged with the robbery of a jewelry store in Sevenoaks Shopping Centre now faces charges related to a total of 13 robberies in Abbotsford and Chilliwack.

Scott Kuebeck, 28, has been charged with the following robberies in Chilliwack: one on Dec. 19, one on Dec. 26, two on Dec. 27, two on Dec. 28, one on Dec. 29 and two on Dec. 30.

He has also been charged with four Abbotsford robberies – one on Dec. 27, two on Dec. 29 and one on Jan. 1.

Kuebeck was charged following the jewelry store robbery, which occurred at about 6 p.m. on Jan. 1, when a man entered the business and selected several items with the help of an employee.

The suspect then pulled out a knife, demanded cash and fled with the jewels and money.

Police, including a canine unit, arrived at the scene and arrested a suspect in a nearby restaurant parking lot after a brief foot chase and tracking by the police dogs.

Shortly after Kuebeck’s arrest, he was charged with three other Abbotsford robberies and one in Chilliwack.

Police at the time said he was a suspect in eight other incidents in Chilliwack, and further charges were expected.

At the time of his arrest on Jan. 1, Kuebeck was on probation for a previous fraud conviction in Abbotsford, for which he had received a five-month conditional sentence.

He also has prior convictions for robbery, theft, break and enter, and breaching his probation.

Kuebeck’s next appearance in Abbotsford provincial court is scheduled for Feb. 16.
