Ridge Meadows RCMP are investigating a late night robbery of a local Subway restaurant.

Just before 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, police received a report of a lone male robbing the store and leaving in a dark coloured vehicle.

A lone male entered the restaurant, which is located in the 22800 block of the Lougheed Highway, and made a purchase, said RCMP Cpl. Alanna Dunlop.

After paying for some food items, he then demanded the clerk give him money from the cash register.

“The clerk did the right thing and complied with his request, handing him an undisclosed amount of cash,” Dunlop added.

The male then walked out and got into a dark coloured SUV style vehicle, which left eastbound on the Lougheed Highway.

The suspect is Caucasian, in late teens to mid 20s, with dark brown short hair. He was wearing a royal blue ‘Element’ hooded sweatshirt, with the hood up over a black baseball hat.
