Three people are in custody and facing charges after an armed robbery in Southey early Sunday morning.
RCMP say the robbery happened at a local business around 1 AM when a man and woman entered with the man carrying what appeared to be a firearm that he pointed at an employee. The man demanded cash and the suspects fled on foot with the money.
About a half hour later, a traffic stop on Highway 6 south of the town resulted in three people, including two matching the description of those involved in the robbery, being taken into custody with firearms, drug paraphernalia and other weapons being seized.
Names of those in custody and what charges they may be facing have not been released. An investigation continues.
