Teen arrested in Lake Country robbery

A Kelowna teen is expected to appear in court today (Monday) after being arrested in connection with a robbery at a Lake Country convenience store over the weekend.

Police say a lone male walked into the 7-Eleven on Highway 97 in Lake Country just before 3 a.m. on Sunday, produced a knife and demanded cash.

Police say the young man was given an undisclosed amount of cash before leaving the store, and the store clerk was unhurt in in the robbery.

Officers, along with police service dog Talon, were called in to search for the suspect, and Talon followed a track to a nearby home, where a young man was seen inside.

A 16-year-old Kelowna man has been arrested and was expected to appear in court Monday on a charge of robbery.
