Langley-Surrey robber has hand-tattoo

A robbery on the Surrey border remains unsolved.

The Surrey RCMP are looking for a man who robbed a convenience store on the Langley-Surrey border Sept. 19.

Police have released security camera footage of the suspect, who entered a convenience store near the 6000 block of 196th Street at about 6 p.m.

The suspect demanded cash and threatened the store’s staff before making his getaway.

He is described as a Caucasian man, about 30 years old, tall with an average build. He had a tattoo on his right hand, and was wearing an orange hoodie with reflective patches.

He fled the scene in a late 2000s silver SUV, possibly a Toyota RAV 4.

“Robberies affect more than just the businesses that lose money; they also can be very traumatic for staff and witnesses involved in the events,” said Cpl. Scotty Schumann of the Surrey RCMP.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or, to remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or visit www.solvecrime.ca.
