Maple Ridge Mounties are asking for help to find the man responsible for an armed robbery in Ruskin last week.
Police are just now releasing details about a brazen heist at the Shake and Shingle Pub on Aug. 20.
The call came in 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 liquor establishment, 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 “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. He is estimated to weight about 150 to 160 pounds, and 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 any information is asked to call Const. Colin Ryder at 604-476-6951, or if they wish to remain anonymous, people can call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or leave a tip online at www.solvecrime.ca.
