Travis Baumgartner arrested at border crossing in connection with armoured-car attack
An Edmonton fugitive wanted for a murderous armoured-car robbery has been arrested at a U.S. border crossing.
Travis Baumgartner, 21, was taken into custody by U.S. border-security staff in Lynden, Washington.
He was carrying over $330,000 in Canadian cash when he was arrested just south of Abbotsford.
He's the prime suspect in the killing of three G4S Security armoured-car company employees at the University of Alberta's Hub Mall. The attack occurred shortly after midnight on June 15.
A fourth worker was seriously wounded. Baumgartner worked for the company.
Shortly after the killing spree, Edmonton Police alerted the public that Baumgartner was the owner of a dark blue Ford F-150 pick-up truck with an Alberta licence plate number ZRE 724.
He was driving this vehicle when he approached the border.
