Police are requesting the public’s help to identify suspects in weekend armed robbery.

At 6:00 AM on Saturday, March 14th, Leduc RCMP responded to a hold up alarm from the Calmar Fas Gas. Leduc RCMP officers immediately responded, as did a member of the RCMP Police Dog Service. While police were en route, employees of the Fas Gas confirmed an armed robbery had occurred. No one was injured, and an undisclosed amount of money was taken.

Police believe both suspects were armed with firearms. The suspects fled the Fas Gas on foot prior to police attending. The descriptions of the two suspects are:
