VERNON, B.C. — Police found the getaway device — but not the suspect — after an armed robbery at a Vernon business.

Mounties say a man entered the Cash Stop on 27th Street around 8:30 this morning.

He produced a weapon, got some cash, and fled on a bicycle that was recovered in the 4000 block of 27A Street.

The suspect is described as a Caucasian male, 45-60 years old, with blue eyes and shorter greying hair.

“He is estimated to be approximately 5″10″ tall with a slim build. At the time of the robbery the male was wearing a beige fleece jacket with a dark shirt or jacket underneath it, dark pants and dark shoes,” says Sgt. Tory Romailler.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact the Vernon RCMP or Crimestoppers.
