Police have made several arrests following an incident last week that began with a truck driver hiring multiple prostitutes and ended with two people being shot outside of a truck stop on the Trans-Canada Highway.
According to a report in the Brandon Sun, the incident began on early on Thursday July 12 when a truck driver allegedly hired four prostitutes to “party” with him in his truck, which was parked at the Petro-Canada truck stop in Brandon, Manitoba.

The truck driver later told police that he had around $40,000 in cash in his truck at the time because he disliked using banks. During the Thursday night party session, he handed out hundred dollar bills to the prostitutes.
Later that afternoon, truck driver says that four people showed up at his truck still parked in the truck stop parking lot, assaulted him, and took his wallet, which he says contained $13,000.
Police later confirmed that the truck driver’s face was bruised.
This incident has been connected to a shooting incident which took place in the lot between the Petro-Canada and the Petro-Pass Truck Stop in Brandon on Thursday around 4 p.m. During this incident, 61 year old Calgary resident Randall Neil McCargar allegedly shot two people, a teenage girl and a 39 year old man, with a shotgun during a robbery attempt that escalated into violence.
Both shooting victims survived.
McCargar has been charged with two counts of attempted murder, obtaining sexual services, and discharging a firearm with intent. He is slated to appear in court next week.
Thirty-one year old Anna-Marie Cheryl Anderson and three others have been arrested and charged with robbery with violence.
The incident remains under investigation.
