Ridge Meadows RCMP believe the same suspect is responsible for two recent robberies.

On Sunday, a male robbed a convenience store in the 21600 block of Dewdney Trunk Road.

It appears the same suspect struck again on Monday at a different store, located in the 22200 block of Dewdney Trunk Road. At approximately 3 p.m., the suspect walked into the store, produced a knife and got away with an undisclosed amount of money.

He was last seen riding a yellow bicycle north from Dewdney Trunk Road on 222 Street.

“Investigators believe the same suspect is involved in both of these robberies,” Cpl. Amanda Harnett said. “By releasing this photo of the man, police are hopeful someone will let us know the identity of this person.”

The suspect is described as a Caucasian male, approximately 6’0” with an average build.
