OKOTOKS (660 NEWS) – Okotoks RCMP say several Calgary men spent their Thanksgiving robbing a Rogers store rather than enjoying dinner.

In the middle of the afternoon on Thanksgiving Monday, four young men entered a Rogers store and attacked two employees.

They took off with cell phones and other devices in a car which the police HAWCS helicopter tracked to a southwest Calgary home.

Five people were arrested along with more than $70,000 in cell phones and other electronics.

They were charged with two counts of robbery, two counts of forcible confinement, two counts of uttering threats, and mischief under $5,000.
