A search is continuing for the suspect in an armed robbery Thursday in Quesnel. Police say a male had his face covered when he walked into a business on Elliott Street around 5:30 in the afternoon.
He pulled out a hand gun and demanded cash and cigarettes from the employee and fled on foot. No injuries were reported.
Quesnel Mounties are trying to determine if this robbery is connected with others in the city recently.
This is a disturbing trend and we recognize that these incidents make people feel unsafe, says Quesnel Detachment Commander Staff Sergeant Andrew Burton. He added “The police are taking these robbery investigations very seriously and have dedicated additional resources in an effort to solve them.”
Mounties believe someone in the public knows who the suspect is. They’re asking them to contact them through Crimestoppers with an anonymous tip. The BC Crimestoppers tip line is 1 800 222-8477. You can also submit an anonymous tip online by clicking here.
