RCMP seek public help in drug store robbery

CHILLIWACK - The Rexall Pharmacy on Mary Street was robbed by a masked man last Friday.

Police said the lone male entered the store at 9200 Mary Street at about 6 p.m. and pointed what is believed to be a firearm at the three employees in the store at the time.

The robber made off with an undisclosed amount of goods.

"The victims involved in this robbery are very upset," said RCMP Const. Tracy Wolbeck.

"It is a really traumatizing event to experience, and we are asking for the public's help in identifying the suspect," she said.

The suspect is described as a white male about 5'8"-5'11" tall with a stocky build. He was wearing a grey, short-sleeve, hooded sweatshirt with a black, long-sleeve shirt underneath. He was wearing grey, baggy sweat pants and black dress shoes.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
