Three charged in New Germany drugstore robbery

Three people have been charged in connection with an armed robbery over the weekend at a drugstore on Highway 10 in New Germany.

The RCMP say the owner reported being robbed by two men with knives early Saturday afternoon, with no injuries reported, before they got into a car and fled the area.

A witness said they saw two men dropping pill bottles and cash as they ran, and followed the suspect vehicle to provide police with updates on its location.

A traffic stop was conducted on Monk Road, where police say two male passengers were arrested after a brief struggle and the woman driving was arrested without incident.

Twenty-two-year-old Krishna Michael Eisener of Bridgewater, 24-year-old Tyler Blaine Jonathan Veinotte of Cookville, and 34-year-old Krystal Mae Doris Kempton of Mill Village each face charges of robbery, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, possession of stolen property and seven counts of possession of a controlled substance.

Eisener and Veinotte face a number of additional charges, including assault with a weapon, resisting arrest, and breach of probation.

All three are due in Bridgewater Provincial Court on Monday.
