Armed robberies


Police are trying to find those involved in four armed robberies last week.

The robberies appear to be completely unrelated to the robberies detailed in previous media reports from the end of February.

According to investigators both knives and/or handguns have been brandished at each robbery while the suspect have mainly targeted liquor, cash and cigarettes.

Cst. Kris Clark says police responded to an early morning robbery of a convenience store on March 5, followed by another convenience store robbery the following night.

"Over the weekend, police responded to a robbery at a liquor store on Friday night and then to a robbery at a gas station on Sunday night," says Clark. "During one incident, the clerk was pepper sprayed by a suspect."

The suspects are described as:
    •    Male
    •    Late teens or early 20's
    •    5 ft. 6 to 6 ft. tall with slim builds

Police are investigating the possibility the four robberies are related.
 
Anyone with any information is asked to call the Kelowna RCMP, Cst Moon or Cst McBride, at 250-762-3300. Remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, leaving a tip online at www.crimestoppers.net or by texting your tip to CRIMES (274637) ktown
