A man entered the store and demanded money from the clerk. He took cash from the register and stole several cartons of Pall Mall cigarettes. He then left the store at 1590 Summit Dr. and jumped into the passenger seat of what appeared to be a dark-coloured Honda Civic. The driver took off southbound on Summit Drive.

Shelkie said the man did not show a weapon during the robbery, noting neither of the two clerks on duty were injured.

The robbery suspect stands about 5-foot-10 and appeared to have brown eyes. He was wearing a dark grey zip-up hoodie with a Boston Celtics logo on the front, a black balaclava and white and black bike gloves with a diamond pattern.

Anybody with information on the suspect or vehicle is asked to contact Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
