Another downtown store has been robbed.
Kamloops RCMP are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a man who robbed the Whispers Adult Superstore on Sunday, Jan. 20. They say a man entered the Seymour Street store at 4:20 p.m. with his face covered.
Brandishing a knife, he told the clerk to open the cash register and give him the money inside. Once he had the money, he left the store and headed on foot down Seymour Street towards Fifth Avenue.
The man is described as:
- Close to 6 feet tall
- Medium build
- Believed to be First Nations
- Suspect was wearing a black hoodie that has light blue trim on the sleeves, inside the pockets and inside of the hood; a mask that was blue, navy and grey camouflage; baggy jeans
The clerk was not injured.
“This is the third robbery in downtown Kamloops in 10 days,” said Cpl. Jodi Shelkie.
“So far the RCMP have not linked these robberies to each other. We are very thankful that no one has been physically harmed.
“In each of the robberies, the employees’ actions have been exactly what police recommend. They have remained calm, cooperated with the robber and observed what the robber looked like, which helps the police later with identifying a suspect.”
