Police say 32-year-old Corey Cardinal was arrested in Inuvik with the help of local RCMP.

Cardinal as well as 21-year-old Timothy McKay are facing a number of charges in connection with the weekend incidents in Whitehorse. Those include armed robbery, break, enter and theft, and breach of probation.

Police are on the hunt for two suspects in central and northern Yukon after a series of armed robberies, and a break and enter on early Saturday morning in Whitehorse.

RCMP identify the suspects as 21-year-old Timothy Clinton McKay, and 32-year-old Corey Robert Cardinal, both of Whitehorse.

Mounties say a black 2001 Acura MDX was also taken as part of the spree. The car has since been found abandoned and rolled in the ditch south of Stewart Crossing.

RCMP describe the suspects as five feet 10 inches tall, with medium builds. McKay is wearing a black sweater, while Cardinal has a grey sweater. Police believe they may be north of Whitehorse, either in Pelly, Mayo, Dawson, Inuvik or the surrounding area.

Both now face numerous charges, including armed robbery, break, enter and theft, and breach of probation in connection with the spree.

If you see the suspects, you are asked not to approach them but to call the police.

(This is a developing story which may be updated as warranted.)
