Saanich Police are investigating the armed robbery of Shoppers Drug Mart on Burnside Road West near the Tillicum Mall.
A lone man with a bandana wrapped over his face entered the drug store shortly after 6 p.m. on Monday evening. He produced a dark-coloured gun, demanded money from the pharmacist and then left on foot after receiving an undisclosed sum of cash.
The unidentified man is described as follows:
– Caucasian male estimated to be in his early 30’s
– approximately 6’2″ in height with a medium build
– described as having piercing green-coloured eyes
– wearing a dark-coloured bandana over most of his face
– white hoody pulled over his head with multi-coloured logos on the front
– bracelet-style tattoo of unknown letters wrapped around his left wrist
There is a possibility that he may have ran to a bicycle and left the area on the bike. There were no injuries to any of the employees in the drug store.
