Detectives are seeking the public’s help in tracking down a male suspect who allegedly robbed an unlicensed dispensary in the Fraser Valley.
The Abbotsford Police Department (APD) issued a news release today (February 20) stating that around 8 p.m. on February 18, a male suspect wearing a mask entered an unlicensed cannabis dispensary in the 2400 block of Clearbrook Road in Abbotsford.
He then produced a firearm and demanded cash and cannabis before fleeing from the premises.
Detectives spoke with a few witnesses who had remained at the scene.
However, investigators are seeking to speak with several other customers who were in the store at the time of the incident but had left before police arrived.
Right after the robbery, a near-collision took place at the entrance of the parking lot outside the dispensary. Investigators want to speak with the driver of the white Dodge vehicle pictured in the above image from surveillance footage.
Anyone who witnessed this incident, was in the area at the time of this robbery, observed any other suspicious vehicles or individuals, or has video or other information about this investigation, is asked to contact the APD at 604-859-5225.
Last month, Abbotsford police arrested two 18-year-old male suspects allegedly involved in an armed robbery of an unlicensed cannabis dispensary on January 22.
