File # 2022-19080

On Monday June 6, 2022 around 2:50 p.m., officers were dispatched to a robbery in progress on the 1200-block of Summit Drive.

While police were en route the suspect allegedly changed into jeans and a white floral shirt behind First Choice Haircutters and then fled on foot.

Officer attending to the scene arrived with a police service dog and discovered what appeared to be a “suspected firearm”, according to RCMP, and the clothes were later found nearby.

The RCMP told BC Rise the “suspected firearm” turned out to be BB gun.

The clothing included a green neon hat, camo jacket, white sweater and black pants.

The investigation is in its very early stages.

Police are requesting if “anyone who saw a Caucasian man changing his clothes behind a business around the time of the robbery, or who has information related to this incident, including surveillance and dash cam footage, to please contact police right away,” said Corporal Crystal Evelyn, Kamloops RCMP spokesperson.

Those with information are asked to please phone the Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 and reference 2022-19080.
