St. Albert RCMP charge Regina man in casino robbery

Saskatchewan resident Shaun Rains, 49, has been charged in an Alberta casino robbery that happened late last year.
RCMP report there is an "unfolding event" happening in the North West quadrant of the city. The RCMP are asking residents to avoid the area.

Police have captured the man who allegedly robbed the St. Albert Century Casino last November.

Saskatchewan resident Shaun Rains, 49, has received four charges: robbery with an imitation firearm, use of an imitation firearm, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose and carrying a concealed weapon.

“After a lengthy investigation, St. Albert GIS travelled to Regina, Saskatchewan and on Mar. 26, 2024, with the assistance of Regina Police Service, located and arrested the male suspect without incident,” an RCMP press release says.

Police did not disclose how much money was stolen from the casino.

Sheriffs transported Rains from Regina to St. Albert, and he will appear in St. Albert court on April 8.
