File # 2021-144

The Kamloops RCMP Detachment is asking for the public’s help in identifying two men involved in an armed robbery Saturday evening.

On January 2, 2021, around 6:10 p.m., frontline officers responded to a report of an armed robbery at a business on the 1200-block of Summit Drive. When police arrived, they were told two men had entered the business around 6:05 p.m. The first man was armed with a knife. He approached an employee and demanded money. The second man guarded the door and had bear spray.

Surveillance video assisted officers from the General Investigation Support Team in identifying a suspect vehicle -- a grey SUV, later located by police and confirmed to be stolen.

Both men were wearing masks, but were described as:

Suspect one:

A masked man in a black hooded jacket, grey pants and black shoes, walks down a retail aisle lined by freezer display cases.

Suspect two:

A man in a reddish-orange mask, orange Carhartt jacket, and black pants and shoes, walks down a retail aisle lined by freezer display cases. There appears to be a grey hooded sweater underneath the orange hood of his jacket, which is up over his head.

On Monday night, January 4, 2021, a frontline police officer was patrolling the North Shore when he located the vehicle near Barrier Drive. The vehicle was unoccupied, but contained a loaded firearm. Police Dog Services assisted in searching for its occupant or occupants, but no one was located. The vehicle was transported to a secure location to be analysed by the Kamloops Forensic Identification Team.

If anyone has any information related to this file, or recognizes the suspects, please contact Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000.
