He allegedly produced a black hand gun and demanded cash from the employee.
He was given money, and he fled on foot.
“Officers were unable to locate their suspect, but some clothing was found a short distance away which is believed to belong to the suspect,” says Cst. Kelly Brett. “The clothing that was seized will be analyzed for a DNA profile, which will aid police in hopefully identifying a suspect.”
The suspect male is described as about 5’9 tall, 45 – 50 years of age, wearing a black hooded sweater with the lettering Metal Mulisha on the front and back, a dark coloured bandanna across the face and a grey and black ball cap with snap-on written on the front.
“Robberies involving businesses can be stressful for employees, however, many businesses thankfully have best practices in place which includes the use of video surveillance,” says Brett. “If you recognize this alleged suspect or have more information about this incident please contact the Vernon RCMP or Crime Stoppers.”
