Calgary, Alberta – Yesterday two unknown men disguised by masks sprayed a fire extinguisher blinding customers and staff during a jewellery store robbery. We are now seeking public assistance in identifying both suspects.
On Monday, Aug. 24, 2020, at approximately 11:45 a.m., two masked men entered Northland Mall, located at 5111 Northland Drive N.W. and proceeded to Tany’s Jewellery.
