Update: March 8, 2018
Vancouver Police are releasing security footage of a robbery that took place in early November, in hopes the public can help identify a suspect.
Just before 1 p.m. on November 4, 2017, a 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 shows the robber jumping onto the counter, assaulting the employee, and stealing product from the shelves. He then allegedly assaults a second staff member just outside of the store as he flees.
“VPD detectives have exhausted any leads to identify this man,” says VPD Constable Jason Doucette. “We believe the high quality of the video will lead to someone recognizing him, and we’re asking them to call our investigators or Crime Stoppers.”
The suspect was described as medium- to dark-skinned, 19 to 25 years-old, 5’10” to 5’11” tall, with an athletic build, shaved dark hair, brown eyes, and dark eyebrows.
Anyone who recognizes the man in the video, or who has information about this robbery, is asked to contact detectives at 604-717-8924 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
