The B.C Prosecution Service has just approved charges in relation to the reported robbery involving an MSS student walking to school Wednesday morning.
Miguel Domingo Albert Mack, 21, and Jesse Patrick Kane, 21, who are both Merritt residents, are each charged with one count of Robbery under Section 344(1)(b) Criminal Code.
The charge is just robbery as the charge of robbery with a firearm was not approved by the Service.
“The reason that we proposed the robbery with a firearm charge was because the firearm was threatened, but it was never actually presented during the robbery,” said Cpl. Brock Hedrick.
The pair will appear in Kamloops Provincial court later today.
