On Saturday at 10:23 p.m., the West Kelowna RCMP responded to a report of a robbery in progress at the Chevron gas station located in the 2400 block of Dobbin Road.

The lone suspect entered the empty store and told the lone clerk “give me the money,” fleeing the scene in a vehicle with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The suspect, a 24-year-old West Kelowna man, was later identified by police and eventually found in the 1800-block of Gordon Drive in Kelowna where he was arrested.

The suspect  was remanded in custody and expected to make an appearance in court today.
