Columbia Valley RCMP seeking suspect in weekend robbery

Police are asking for help in their search for a suspect believed to be involved in an armed robbery at an Invermere pharmacy.

Columbia Valley RCMP officers responded to the local Pharmasave just after 12 p.m. on Sunday.

Police officials said the man brandished a gun and demanded the employee to hand over drugs.

“The armed suspect fled the store with an undisclosed amount of controlled substances,” said Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey, spokesman for the BC RCMP Southeast District. “Investigators believe he further fled the area in a red newer model pickup truck. No employees or patrons were physically injured during the incident.”
