Cops release sketch of pizza delivery man robber

Two incidents in two weeks, Coquitlam Mounties say

Coquitlam Mounties are searching for a suspect in a pair of robberies involving pizza delivery drivers.

Mounties have released a sketch of a suspect in a pair of robberies involving pizza delivery drivers in Port Coquitlam.

The most recent incident occurred May 26, just after 10:30 p.m. in the 2200 block of Prairie Avenue. The suspect ordered the pizza using a blocked cell phone number, asking the driver to bring change for a $100 bill. Police said upon meeting the driver and taking the pie, the suspect pulled out a gun and told the driver to hand over his wallet.

Ten days earlier, the suspect met a delivery driver in the 1800 block of Aires Crescent, took out a gun and demanded his wallet.

Const. Jamie Phillipson credited the two victims for remaining calm and providing a fairly detailed suspect description.

The robber is described as Caucasian, 25 to 30 years old, with green eyes, facial stubble and was clean cut. He spoke with no accent.

Anyone with information is asked to call Coquitlam RCMP at 604-945-1550 and quote file number 2016-15442.
