“A suspect presented a weapon to an employee of the business, and demanded money,” Leykauf told the Optimist. “He received a small amount of cash, and then fled the scene. Fortunately the employee did not receive any physical injuries, and it appears there were no threats to the public as this incident unfolded.”

Leykauf said the integrated police dog unit attended the location, but was unable to locate a track. Police are working with Real Time Intelligence Centre-BC and other law enforcement agencies, as the investigation proceeds.

Police are asking any witnesses who have yet to speak with police are encouraged to do so by calling 604-946-4411 or if you wish to remain anonymous call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
