Alleged masked thief arrested
A WOMAN faces charges after being arrested for allegedly robbing a woman at a local ATM earlier this week.
Shaunna Burns, 35, has been charged with robbery and disguise face with intent to commit an indictable offence, reported Terrace RCMP today, Oct. 24.
At 8 a.m. Oct. 21, a 50-year-old woman was injured at the Royal Bank ATM when someone body-checked her, knocking her to the floor and stole her purse, said police.
Staff at the bank assisted police in obtaining video footage that showed the thief wearing a mask during the robbery, said police.
Later that evening, police arrested a woman on an outstanding warrant out of Alberta for aggravated assault, possession of weapon dangerous to the public, and failing to attend court.
Investigation led police to arrest this woman for the robbery.
Burns was released October 23 on an undertaking to appear in court on November 19 here.
