Mission's Cherry Hill Store robbed again
Police are looking for help in identifying a suspect in the robbery of Cherry Hill Grocery Store Sunday afternoon.
Around 1:30 p.m. a single male entered the store, located at Cedar Street and Cherry Avenue, dressed in a black motorcycle jacket, gloves and a black and white full-face motorcycle helmet, said Mission RCMP.
The person went to the back of the store, then approached the cashier and put money on the counter. When the cashier opened the register, the suspect allegedly pulled a knife, reached into the till and stole an undisclosed amount of money.
The suspect — described as having a slim build and between 6' and 6'3" — ran outside and fled on a yellow motocross-style motorcycle.
Police say a black Jeep Cherokee, possibly a late 2000 model, was nearby and Mounties would like to speak to the occupants to see if they have any further information. One of the Jeep passengers may have been a male wearing a white T-shirt.
This is the fifth time the store has been robbed in a year.
