Suspects escape Staples robbery using bear spray

Crimestoppers is trying to find two men who took $1,000 in surveillance equipment from the Vedder Road Staples.

One of the suspects from the Staples robbery identified in video surveillance.

Chilliwack RCMP are looking for two suspects involved in the latest Crime Stoppers ‘Crime of the Week.’

The dubious distinction goes to a pair of men who stormed into the Vedder Road Staples just after 1 p.m. on Nov. 26.

One of the men retreated back outside, where police believe he acted as the getaway driver. The other men gathered up $1,000 worth of surveillance equipment and fired off pepper spray to keep Staples staff from following him out of the store.

Both suspects escaped in an older model brown Jeep Cherokee.

They’re described as Caucasian males in their mid to late twenties and they were wearing dark winter coats with fur trimmed hoods.

Anyone with info is asked to contact Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at 1-800-222-8477.

You could be eligible for a reward of up to $2000 upon arrest and charge and you will never be asked your name or have to appear in court.
