On April 9, 2022, at approximately 12:10 am, Dauphin RCMP responded to a report of a robbery with firearm at a gas station located on Main Street in Dauphin.
Officers responded and were advised that four masked male suspects, one of which was armed with a firearm, had entered the business and approached a member of the staff who was then threatened. The suspects then ran off with a large amount of stolen merchandise.
