Update: VPD Search for Robbery Suspect

Vancouver Police have identified a 21-year-old Chilliwack man as the robbery suspect in security footage released on March 7.

Just before 1 p.m. on November 4, 2017, a young man entered the Weeds Glass and Gifts marijuana shop on Victoria Drive near East 34th Avenue. After a brief conversation with a female staff member, the video showed the robber jumping onto the counter, assaulting the employee, and stealing product from the shelves. He then allegedly assaulted a second staff member just outside of the store as he flees.

Police received a number of tips from the public following the release of security footage, and the suspect was arrested later that night. He has been released from custody with several conditions pending further investigation and approval of criminal charges.

There is no additional information to share at this time.
