Burnaby Mounties are looking for two suspects involved in an alleged robbery of a convenience store Wednesday morning.
Police were called to the store in the 7600 block of Royal Oak Avenue at 3:15 a.m. after three men robbed the store, getting away with an undisclosed amount of cash and cigarettes.
A short time later, a stolen jeep police believe is related to the robbery, crashed on the border of Burnaby and Vancouver. At that point, the Vancouver Police Department’s dog unit stepped in and made one arrest.
However, two other suspects managed to get away.
Burnaby RCMP Sgt. Derek Thibodeau noted the suspects suggested they had a weapon during the store robbery, but one was never found. No one was injured during the incident.
Police are hoping the public can help identify the two men who got away.
One suspect is described as a dark-skinned man, standing five feet five inches tall with a stocky build and wearing a dark hoodie.
The second suspect is also described as a dark-skinned man, standing six feet three-inches tall, with a slim build and wearing dark clothing.
Anyone with information is asked call to local RCMP detachment 604-294-7922.
Meanwhile, the suspect arrested at the scene is awaiting an appearance in court.
