Suspect at large after Shell station robbed
Revelstoke RCMP are looking for a man who robbed the Shell gas station Thursday night.
Police say that shortly before midnight on Dec. 19, a man entered the gas station and demanded money from the clerk.
The clerk handed over the money and the man took off on foot.
Staff-Sgt. Kurt Grabinsky of the Revelstoke RCMP said there was no weapons involved.
He said a police dog followed his tracks across the street, through the McDonald's parking lot, into Woodenhead Park and along the underpass beneath the Trans-Canada Highway, where it lost the trail.
RCMP are reviewing security footage to identify the suspect. He is described as a white male, 19–25-years-old, wearing a blue coat, blue jeans, black boots and a black and white logo ball cap.
Anyone with information on the crime is asked to call the Revelstoke RCMP at 250-837-5255 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
