RCMP search for convenience store robbers

Two men allegedly held up a Yale Road convenience store last Thursday, escaping with cash and evading a police search.

RCMP are looking for public help to find a pair of robbery suspects.

Shortly after 5 a.m. July 9 two men wearing disguises entered a convenience store in the 46900 block of Yale Road, allegedly demanding cash and threatening to ‘spray’ the employee.

They ran off with the cash and evaded police as they searched the area.

The first suspect is described as a male wearing a white hat, black hoody and jeans. The second suspect wore a blue hat, black jeans, red hoody and running shoes.

Our General Investigation Support Team continues to follow all investigational leads to apprehend the persons responsible for this robbery,” said Cpl. Mike Rail. “We are also looking at whether the suspects attempted to enter another convenience store just prior to the robbery.”

Anyone with info is asked to contact the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers (anonymously) at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
