CALGARY – Tips from the public helped Calgary Police identify a robbery suspect and police have issued a warrant for the man.
Jonah Coy, 22, of Calgary, is wanted on warrants. He is charged with robbery with a prohibited firearm, unlawful confinement, unauthorized possession of a firearm in a motor vehicle, possession of a prohibited or restricted firearm with ammunition, careless use of a firearm, possession of a firearm without a license, and three counts of breaching a court order.
Police are now asking for the public’s help to locate Coy.
Tips from the public helped identify Coy as a suspect in a robbery at Cowboys Casino last summer. At about 1:15 a.m., on July 14, 2019, a patron of Cowboys Casino was engaged in a conversation with three suspects who convinced him to go to one of their vehicles. When the man got to the vehicle, it is believed that one of the suspects pointed a firearm at him and demanded his bank cards and PINs.
The victim then exited the vehicle and got help from a nearby police officer, at which point the suspects fled. Police located and arrested two of the suspects, but the other one was not found. Weapons were located and seized from inside the vehicle.
Coy is described as 5-foot-10, with a slim build, black hair and brown eyes.
Anyone with information on Coy’s whereabouts is asked to contact the Calgary Police Service by calling 403-266-1234. Tips can also be submitted anonymously by contacting Crime Stoppers through any of the following methods:
