They approached a staff member at front counter, and forced her into the bar area. They demanded that she open the safe and give them the money. The armed suspects accessed the safe and obtained over two thousand dollars in cash. They fled the scene in what is believed to be a newer black Ford F150 with out of province license plates. No one was injured.
The first suspect is described as approximately six feet tall, husky build, wearing a black coat, full face mask, glasses, gloves.
The second suspect is described as slightly shorter, hat, full face mask, and a dark coat.
It is possible that the second suspect is a female.
Earlier that night, a male and a female entered the hotel and asked a staff member at the front counter a variety of questions, and walked around the building multiple times and left without renting a room. It is believed these two persons may have been targeting the motel prior to committing the robbery. Please see the attached photos.
If anyone recognizes the persons involved or the vehicle, they are asked to call the Vegreville RCMP at 780.632.2223 or CrimeStoppers at 1.800.222.TIPS (8477)
