A 21-year-old man has been charged with armed robbery after allegedly stealing cologne from a drug store.
Travis Heath is alleged to have pulled out a handgun in the store and threatened the staff in the 9100 block of Blundell Road after they confronted him about taking the cologne.
According to police, Heath then fled the store on a bicycle. Police saw him and after a brief foot chase he was taken into custody.
A black replica handgun was seized from Heath and the stolen goods were located.
Heath is known to police and has two outstanding warrants on top of the charges for this incident. He has been charged with one count of robbery and one count of using an imitation firearm.
Heath is set to appear next in court on Oct. 29 in Richmond.
Charges laid in fatal crash
The driver of a car involved in a fatal crash that killed two young brothers has been charged with causing their deaths.
Ryan Jeffrey Webster, aged 20 at the time, was behind the wheel of a BMW when it spun off the road near Steveston Highway and No. 4 Road and hit a tree in May 2012.
Webster sustained minor injuries, while his two passengers that fateful night - Shane and Jess Moses, age 19 and 16 - died instantly.
On Monday morning, Richmond RCMP announced that, after an extensive investigation, Webster has now been charged with two counts of impaired driving causing death and two counts of operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol level over 0.8 causing death.
Webster had a class 7 driver's license at the time. He is set to appear in court Nov. 28.
In the days following the tragedy, tributes poured in on a Facebook page for the two young brothers and many students at the brothers' school, McNair secondary, wore black out of respect for their popular friends.
