Arrests made after armed robbery at Surrey jewellery store

The Surrey RCMP says charges have been laid in connection with an alleged armed robbery at a jewellery store in Guildford last month.

On Feb. 18, Mounties were called to reports of shots being fired at the shop on 101 Avenue near 152 Street just before 6:30 p.m.

Officers arrived to find one person who had been shot. No suspects were at the scene, and the victim was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Previously, Corp. James Mason said the victim was believed to be an employee of the jewellery store. He was not known to police, to Mason’s knowledge.

The RCMP says on Feb. 27, two people were arrested in Calgary in connection with its investigation.

Meanwhile, on March 1, a third suspect was arrested in Langley “for robbery with a firearm.” The 33-year-old Vancouver man has since been released without charges.

Mounties say the two people taken into custody in Alberta — 36-year-old Michael Onischuk and 32-year-old Larrissa Cowan — have since been charged with multiple offences, including robbery using a restricted firearm, aggravated assault, intent to maim with a firearm, and unlawful possession of a firearm.

The pair remains in custody until their next court date.
