Investigators from West Vancouver police are seeking information that will help them identify a man who stole $10,000 worth of sunglasses from a store in Park Royal Mall over the weekend.
On January 30, at 6:40 pm, officers were called to the Sunglass Hut after witnesses reported that a man had entered the store, and brandished a canister of bear spray.
When the suspect was challenged by the store clerk, he deployed the bear spray inside the store, and then stole a large amount of designer sunglasses and ran off.
There were no reported injuries.
Police immediately set up roadblocks in the area, but the suspect managed to escape.
“This was a brazen robbery in the middle of a busy mall,” says Cst. Kevin Goodmurphy.
“We are hoping that someone may have information to assist with identifying this suspect.”
The suspect is described as a Caucasian man in his mid-twenties, with brown hair, wearing a blue/white disposable medical mask, black hoodie with white logo, black pants, black shoes with white sole, and was carrying a gym-style blue bag with red shoulder strap.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call West Vancouver Police at 604-925-7300.
