A Fort Fraser man appeared in court Friday after being charged with a robbery in Prince George.

On April 23, just before 5 p.m., Prince George RCMP were called to a report of a robbery at a local pizza place.

Members responded to the report, in the 3300 block of 15th Avenue. On arrival, officers determined that a man attended the establishment, threatened he had a knife and demanded money from the cash register. The man fled the pizza place on foot with cash.

Following tips from the public, the man was arrested a short time later in a residence on the 1400 block of Douglas Street. Video surveillance from the pizza store assisted officers in identifying the suspect. Further evidence was obtained at the residence.

Sandy Todd Plante, 37, from Fort Fraser has been charged with 1 count of robbery and made his first court appearance on April 27.

The Prince George RCMP would like to thank those members of the public that greatly assisted in locating this suspect, by providing vital information.

If you have any information about this or any other criminal offence, please contact the Prince George RCMP at (250)561-3300 or anonymously contact Crime Stoppers at 1(800)222-TIPS (8477), online at www.pgcrimestoppers.bc.ca, or Text-A-Tip to CRIMES using keyword “pgtips”.
