Police release surveillance images after an armed robbery Sunday
RCMP are releasing surveillance stills as they continue their investigation into an armed robbery carried out at a local pharmacy late Sunday morning.
On March 8, 2020 at 11:13 a.m., Trail and Greater District RCMP responded to a report of an armed robbery just committed at the pharmacy inside the Safeway store located at 1599 Second Avenue. The lone female suspect reportedly approached the pharmacy counter and produced a note which demanded methadone.
The suspect was reportedly seen in possession of a black handgun, which was concealed in a re-useable shopping bag, states Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey, spokesperson for the RCMP Southeast District.
It is very fortunate that no one was injured as a result of this brazen daytime crime.
The suspect, who was captured on the store’s video surveillance system, managed to flee with an undisclosed amount of methadone. She has been described to police as a Caucasian woman, approximately 5 foot 4 inches to 5 foot 6 inches tall. She was seen wearing a large dark green and yellow winter coat with the hood up, a pair of dark baggy pants, a pair of dark shoes, a black brimmed baseball cap with white lettering, a pair of sunglasses, while carrying a black re-usable grocery bag with the phrase
Just COZY, written on it.
