On September 21, 2020 at approximately 10:55 p.m., the Kamloops RCMP was called to a local pizza business in the 800-block of Columbia Street who reported being robbed at gun point.

A lone suspect entered the business, approached one of the employees who was working at the till and pointed what looked like a firearm towards him, asking for the money from the register. The employee complied, and the suspect grabbed an undisclosed amount of money before leaving the scene. He was last observed heading north on Columbia on a small bike.
