Kamloops RCMP are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a man who robbed the Howard Johnson Inn on Monday night (April 10, 2017).
At about 10:15 p.m. a man entered the inn on Columbia Street and pointed a black handgun-looking firearm at the clerk working behind the desk. The man went directly to the cash drawer and took some money while ordering the clerk to get into a back room, then left. The clerk was not injured.
Cpl. Jodie Shelkie said police officers and the police dog combed the area but didn’t find the robber. He was wearing a balaclava, a black hoodie, black Adidas track pants with white stripes down the leg, and carrying a greyish-black backpack.
If you have any information on this robbery or can identify the suspect, please contact the Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
