Multiple charges laid in connection to armed robbery this week

RCMP continue to investigate the identity of the second female suspect

Red Deer RCMP have sworn charges against a woman after she was arrested during an armed robbery at a convenience store shortly after 9 a.m. on July 6th, and do not believe a child was involved in the incident at this time.

RCMP continue to investigate the identity of the second female suspect, who fled the scene in a stolen truck and abandoned it nearby.

An initial report from a witness to the robbery indicated that they may have heard a child in the truck, though no child was seen; since then, RCMP have interviewed a second witness who saw the stolen truck as it was being abandoned shortly after the robbery.

That witness confirmed that one female suspect walked away from the truck and that no child was present at that time.

RCMP continue to search for the second female suspect, who is described as a short woman with black hair, thick-set build, approximately 40 – 50 years old, possibly Aboriginal, wearing a grey shirt and a black pair of shorts.

Cheyenne Ashley Yellowface, 30, was arrested at the scene of the robbery and faces the following charges – use of firearm in the commission of an offence; careless use of a firearm; unauthorized possession of prohibited firearm; possession of prohibited firearm while knowing possession is prohibited; pointing a firearm; possession of weapon for dangerous purpose; possession of firearm in motor vehicle; resist/ obstruct peace officer; weapons possession contrary to order; dangerous operation of motor vehicle; disguise with intent to commit offence; possession of stolen property over $5,000; fail to comply with probation order x 2; robbery with firearm; driving while disqualified and possession of Schedule I substance (methamphetamine).

Yellowface was wanted on two warrants out of Rocky Mountain House at the time of her arrest.

She was remanded and made her first appearance in court in Red Deer on July 7th.
