Two Arrested After Armed Robbery in Thickwood, Police Searching For Third Suspect

Two people are being charged for allegedly taking part in an armed robbery in Thickwood.

On March 31, Wood Buffalo RCMP were called to a business near the intersection of Signal Road and Thickwood Drive after multiple individuals entered and demanded money.

A weapon was reportedly used with two employees receiving minor injuries that didn’t require any medical attention.

The individuals ended up leaving in a vehicle with an undisclosed amount of money.

Shortly after, the Mounties were able to locate two individuals with help from police dog services.

They ended up arresting 39-year-old Jaclyn Louise Johnsen, from Leduc, and 27-year-old Edmonton resident Alfred Richard Kamara.

They were each charged with two counts of robbery with a weapon, two counts of possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, possession of property obtained by crime, possession of a controlled substance, and two counts of forcible confinement.

Kamara was also charged with three counts of failing to comply with a release order.

He remains in police custody and will make his next court appearance on April 7, while Johnsen has been released and will appear in a courtroom on April 14.

Also, the Mounties are looking for a third suspect involved in the robbery.

He’s described as a mid-30’s black man, around 5’11”, and stocky build. He was last seen wearing a red and black jacket.

Anyone with information is asked to contact RCMP at 780-788-4040 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
