Police are checking into an armed robbery that took place last Saturday night at the Mac’s convenience store at 227th Street and Dewdney Trunk Road in Maple Ridge.
The suspect was described as a white male, 5′ 5″ with slim build and short, dark hair.
Police say that the suspect used a knife to threaten the clerk at about 9:45 p.m., then took off with an undetermined amount of cash.
There were no injuries.
It’s not the first time the store has been robbed. Last Sept. 26 and 27, the store was robbed two days in a row by someone who had a similar description from both incidents – late 20s, with blond hair, black baseball cap, black jeans, and a brown shirt.
Then, in March 19 of this year, also a Saturday, there was another knifepoint robbery at about 10:30 p.m., by a man described as about six feet tall, with slim build, wearing a bandana. A second man met him outside the store and the two took off on foot, running north on 227th Street.
