LETHBRIDGE, AB – A robbery from a south Lethbridge business has resulted in charges against two local men.

Lethbridge Police say on Monday afternoon (Mar. 29) around 1:45 p.m., a man allegedly grabbed a bag of tools from the store along 32 St S and ran off to a pickup truck that was waiting nearby.

However, a store employee jumped into the box of the truck in an attempt to get the tools back. When the truck drove away, the employee tried to get out, but they were dragged for several feet and suffered minor injuries to their arms and hands.

Police were called and they were able to follow the two suspects until they came to a stop on the west side. Almo Yellow Face, 35, and Cory Hagen, 39, were arrested shortly after.

LPS are also urging residents to avoid interfering with criminal activity, saying that your safety should always be a top priority.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
