Police seek help to find fugitive

Police need the public’s help to locate Gregory Kurt Heck, 35, who is wanted on two counts of failure to comply with the conditions of his release.

Heck is charged with assault and uttering threats, according to an advisory issued by Crime Stoppers Yukon on Friday morning.

Heck is 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighs approximately 177 pounds.

He is a Caucasian male with brown eyes and short brown hair although he may have grown his hair longer since he was last seen.

Contact the Whitehorse RCMP detachment at 667-5555, or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 if you have seen this man. (SF)


Quick action nabs suspected armed robber

An unknown male entered Bernie’s Race Teac Gas at about 10 p.m. on Tuesday night. He threatened the store clerk with a weapon and demanded money.

Thanks to quick action from the store’s clerk, RCMP police dog services tracked the suspect through the McIntyre subdivision where he was arrested without incident, according to an RCMP report.

Twenty-five-year-old Christopher Jonathan Dale Cornell, of Whitehorse, was charged with one count each of robbery with an offensive weapon and disguise with intent.

Cornell remains in custody.

It is unknown if this crime was linked to the other armed robbery that happened at the gas station on March 15.

This separate incident remains under investigation. (LC)
