A suspect has been arrested in connection to a series of robberies and thefts from Cranbrook businesses.
RCMP released a photo late last week of a man believed connected to a Christmas Day robbery at 7-Eleven on Cranbrook Street North and a robbery at the Prestige Rocky Mountain Resort on Boxing Day.
After the photo was released, police say the accused turned himself in to the Cranbrook detachment.
A search warrant was later executed at a local motel, where evidence was uncovered to support a police investigation.
The accused is to appear in BC Provincial Court in 2019.
He is not a current resident of the East Kootenay area.
RCMP are thanking everyone who helped provide information into these incidents.
