Maple Ridge Mounties are asking for help to find the man responsible for an armed robbery in Ruskin in late August.
More than a week after the incident, local police released details about a brazen heist at the Shake and Shingle Pub on Aug. 20.
The call came to Ridge Meadows RCMP on the Tuesday evening, at about 9:15 p.m., after a lone man - wearing a disguise to cover his face - entered the pub, produced a weapon, and stole an undisclosed amount of cash, said Cpl. Alanna Dunlop.
He was seen fleeing the scene, running out of the bar towards 287th Street, where "police believe the suspect was able to get into a vehicle to facilitate his escape," she said.
The robbery suspect is described as a Caucasian man, approximately 5 ft. 10 in. tall, with a slight build, about 150 to 160 pounds. He was wearing black-rimmed glasses, a black track jacket, blue jeans, and white running shoes.
"We are thankful no one was injured," Dunlop added, noting the investigation is ongoing.
"Ridge Meadows RCMP are investigating this robbery, and are hoping for more information to follow up on," she said.
Anyone with information can call Const. Colin Ryder at 604-476-6951, or to remain anonymous, CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or leave a tip online at www.solvecrime.ca.
