A resident of Coaldale is facing multiple criminal charges following a robbery in Coaldale on April 9.

According to a RCMP-issued release, Coaldale RCMP have charged Jason Wieler (28) with robbery with a firearm and possession of property obtained by crime.

On Monday, April 8, 2024, at approximately 11:15 a.m., Coaldale RCMP were dispatched to an armed robbery at a local bank. Following an investigation, the RCMP found the male suspect had presented a note to a bank teller on-shift requesting an undisclosed sum. According to the RCMP release, “there was a threat that another suspect was outside with a firearm.” 

The investigation allowed RCMP to identify the suspect, who was arrested by officers shortly thereafter at a residence in Coaldale. 

Following a Judicial Interim Release Hearing, Wieler was remanded into custody and is set to appear in the Alberta Court of Justice in Lethbridge on April 11, 2024.
