Revelstoke resident charged with two robberies at Days Inn

Police say the robber made his getaway on a bicycle once, but wasn't as lucky when he returned for a second heist a couple hours later.

A Revelstoke man is facing two counts of robbery after two separate incidents at a local motel on Monday, May 7.

RCMP say a lone male entered the Revelstoke Days Inn at 301 Wright Street just before 8 p.m. They say he robbed the female clerk and then made his getaway on a bicycle.

About two hours later at 9:40 p.m., the same man returned and demanded more money. RCMP say there was a brief struggle when the motel manager and the clerk attempted to retreat and hide in the motel office while they dialled 9-1-1. RCMP say the man broke into the till and took about $40.

In a statement, RCMP Staff-Sgt. Jacquie Olsen said police managed to track down the suspect at a Revelstoke residence a short time later and arrest him.

Revelstoke resident Lee Kincaid, 42, has been charged with two counts of robbery and mischief to property. Kincaid remains in jail and is scheduled for a bail hearing on May 22. Staff-Sgt. Olsen said Kincaid “is known to the police.” He wasn’t staying at the motel at the time.

Police say neither the clerk nor the manager were seriously hurt. None of the money was recovered. Police say no weapons were used in either incident.
