Police are checking into a robbery of a Maple Ridge Chevron gas station Monday evening, following an earlier heist of another Chevron station in Pitt Meadows, Feb. 21.

Ridge Meadows RCMP say at about 5 p.m. Monday, a man in his late 20s or early 30s walked into the Chevron station on Dewdney Trunk Road and 216th Street. He produced a weapon and demanded cash.

The clerk handed over the money and the man walked out, last seen headed east along Dewdney Trunk Road.

“The store’s clerk did a very commendable job by complying with the suspect’s demands and remaining safe throughout dealing with this person,” said Insp. Dan Splinter.

The suspect is described as about 5’9” tall with slender build and acne scars on his chin. He was wearing a baseball hat and hoodie.

Police are investigating other robberies to see if they can be linked to the same suspect.

The robbery at the Pitt Meadows Chevron on Harris Road on Feb. 21 involved two heavy-set white men who also used a weapon. They took off in a silver-grey four-door sedan.

Earlier, on Feb. 2, a robber escaped with some cash after holding up the 7-Eleven on Lougheed Highway at 212th Street.

That suspect is described as a white male in his mid-20s, 5’,4” tall, with a slim build and blond hair.
