File # 2023-8700

Cranbrook RCMP arrested a suspect in the armed robbery that occurred on September 18th in the 1700-Block of Cranbrook St N.

On September 18th, at approximately 6:30 P.M., Cranbrook RCMP was called to a robbery at the Shell Gas Station. An unknown male produced a handgun and demanded items from the clerk. He then fled the area.

Hard work and dedication by the Cranbrook RCMP identified the suspect, says Cst Katie Forgeron. On September 26th, a local citizen located the individual and advised RCMP of his whereabouts. He was taken into custody without incident.

The B.C. Prosecution Service has approved one charge of Robbery and one charge of Breach of Release Order against Brian Clarence Holladay, a 28-year old resident of Trail.  He remains in custody at this time.

We would like to thank local businesses who assisted the RCMP in providing CCTV footage, which led to RCMP identifying the suspect, adds Forgeron.

RCMP are still investigating the incident and are asking anyone who may have been witness to the robbery or may have dashcam from the area of the gas station between 6 P.M. and 7 P.M. on September 18th, to reach out to the Cranbrook office at 250-489-3471. The public can also contact Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) to leave an anonymous tip.
