Two restaurants robbed
Ridge Meadows RCMP are looking for a man who made off with a loot of cash over the weekend after holding up a pair of fast-food stores.
The first robbery took place just after 6 p.m. on Saturday, at the Maple Ridge Dairy Queen in the 22400-block of the Lougheed Highway.
Police said a man with a weapon, approached the cashier and demanded money. After he got the money, he fled the restaurant.
The second robbery took place around 11:30 a.m. Sunday, when a man walked into the Subway restaurant in the 12300-block of Harris Road in Pitt Meadows and demanded money.
Police believe both robberies were committed by the same person, described as between 25 to 30 years old, approximately 5 foot 8 inches tall, with an average build, dirty blond hair and a pronounced pointy nose.
In both robberies, the man wore a black tuque with a white design on it.
“Police commend the victims in both of these incidents,” said Cpl. Alanna Dunlop.
“They complied with the demands the suspect made, which dramatically enhances their personal safety in these types of cases. The reports indicate the male did have a weapon, but did not threaten anyone with it.”
