Nordegg, Alberta – Rocky Mountain House RCMP responded to an attempted armed robbery at the Nordegg Lodge on May 5, and as a result arrested two males who are facing charges and remain in custody. 

At approximately 10:00 a.m., Rocky Mountain House RCMP were dispatched to an attempted armed robbery at the Nordegg Lodge. Two disguised males drove a truck to the main doors and with a tow rope attempted to steal the ATM. One male suspect was denied access to the ATM as the employee locked the entrance. One male suspect was carrying what is believed to be a firearm.
