Kamloops Mounties are asking for the public’s help in identifying two men involved in an armed robbery on the weekend.
On Saturday, Jan. 2, at 6:10 p.m., Const. Crystal Evelyn said, officers were called to a business in the 1200-block of Summit Drive in Sahali, When police arrived, they were told two men had entered the business around 6:05 p.m. The first man was armed with a knife. He approached an employee and demanded money. The second man guarded the door and had bear spray.
Evelyn said surveillance video helped officers identify a suspect vehicle -- a grey SUV, which was later found by police and confirmed to be stolen. It was found on the North Shore, with a loaded firearm inside.
During the robbery, both men were wearing masks.
One man was wearing all black clothing except for his pants, which were grey. He was armed with a knife and described as being “shaggy” or dishevelled. The second man was wearing a burnt orange Carhartt jacket and orange face mask, with what appeared to be a grey hoodie under the jacket. He was armed with bear spray and also described as being “shaggy” or dishevelled, with strong body odour.
