On February 24th, 2018 Wetaskiwin RCMP were dispatched to an armed robbery at the Millet Liquor Store. The male left the scene possibly in a black car before police arrived.

A tall, 150-190lbs aboriginal male, with stitches in right eyebrow, last seen wearing grey sweats and black jacket entered the store. He selected a 1.75L bottle of Smirnoff and placed it on the counter. The male then instructed the employee to give him all the money in the till.

The male was holding a can of pepper spray. The employee handed over the cash and was not injured in the incident. The male was not located and patrols were made for the individual.
