Mounties in Chilliwack have made an arrest in relation to a robbery.
On the evening of June 12, Chilliwack RCMP responded to the 7000-block of Vedder Road where a woman had allegedly entered a store, produced a weapon and demanded money. The woman departed the scene in a taxi that was waiting for her outside before the police arrived at the scene.
The investigation revealed the taxi driver had no knowledge of the crime.
The Chilliwack RCMP General Duty and General Investigation Support Section quickly mobilized and collected evidence leading to the arrest of 41 years old Jacqueline SKIMMING for robbery. SKIMMING was located and arrested in another store where the taxi had dropped her off.
This is an excellent example of the strong cohesion between the various police units identifying and arresting the suspect promptly, said Cpl. Martin Godard, media spokesperson for the Chilliwack RCMP.
Police have recovered the weapon and the money and are continuing to investigate.
