Pepper spray used in drug-related robbery

Dawson Creek RCMP report that although a recent robbery turned violent, there is a low risk to the public as it was likely drug related. According to the victims, on an unspecified date, four or five assailants forced their way into a home in the 800 block of 104 Avenue in Dawson Creek.

The suspects, who were wearing balaclavas to conceal their faces, the proceeded to threaten the occupants with a gun and demanded money and drugs.

They made off with an undisclosed amount of cash and non-prescription drugs, but not before spraying the victims with pepper spray.

As this appears to be a drug-related offence, police say the public is not at risk.
