The Vernon RCMP has made an arrest in an armed robbery earlier this month. 

Police were called to a gas station in the 2400 block of 34th Street in Vernon, where a man wearing a Deadpool mask had brandished a weapon. 

"As a result of the initial media release to the public, police received many viable tips and a suspect was identified," says Cpl Tania Finn, media relations officer with the Vernon North Okanagan RCMP.

RCMP executed a search warrant at the suspect’s home and seized multiple items related to the investigation. 

A 19-year-old Vernon man remains in custody. The matter is currently before the courts, police say.
