A 27-year-old woman faces charges after RCMP say a cab driver was robbed in Hay River Thursday night. 

The taxi driver reported the alleged incident in the early hours of Thursday, March 28, telling police he had been robbed, according to a news release from Mounties.

The cab driver provided police with a description of a female suspect, leading RCMP to make an arrest.

The woman is also suspected of breaking into the Migrator Hotel earlier that night, according to RCMP.

Royanne Bugghins, of K’atlodeeche First Nation, has been charged with robbery and breaking and entering.

She is due to appear in a Yellowknife court on April 1.
