Six months after the robbery of a Whitehorse gas station, police have arrested a suspect in Vancouver.

On Oct. 15, Vancouver Police arrested 34 year-old Vancouver resident, Wesley Alexander, on a Canada-wide warrant for the robbery at Bernie’s Race Trac Gas, from April 15.

According to an RCMP press release, Alexander was brought back to the Yukon and made an appearance in territorial court on Oct. 19.

He has been remanded in custody until his next court appearance, set for Oct. 28 to make a plea.

The gas station was robbed at approximately 10:30 p.m. by a man carrying a blow torch.

The thief made off with over $700 in cash, some of which Whitehorse RCMP were able to recover with the assistance of a police dog.
