Armed robbery reported at Cultus Lake pub

Chilliwack RCMP are in pursuit of a suspect in the armed robbery of the Cultus Lake pub at about 1:45 p.m. today (Tuesday).

The robber reportedly aimed a long-barrelled handgun at a patron before fleeing on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash from the pub located at 3696 Columbia Valley Rd.

But a police dog picked up a track that led investigators to a set of tire prints behind the pub, suggesting the suspect escaped in a small passenger-type vehicle.

The suspect was described as a white male wearing a brown hoodie.
