Search Continues For La Ronge Robbery Suspects

The RCMP say there doesn’t appear to be a connection between the two armed robberies in La Ronge last week — but they are not completely ruling it out.


Last Friday, a man reportedly armed with a knife entered the Credit Union and made off with an unknown quantity of cash.


Five days earlier, a local motel manager was tied up and robbed in her home by a male suspect wearing a ski mask.


No one has been arrested in either case.


The local RCMP have been unable to provide detailed descriptions of the suspects, but the local cable TV channel is broadcasting images of the suspect from the Credit Union robbery.


Provincial RCMP spokesman Sgt. Brian Jones says the La Ronge detachment has received a number of tips and ideas from the public and is following up on them.
