Mission Mounties are looking for a woman between 20-30 years old in connection with three armed robberies last week.

The suspect hit two stores on Thursday, March 10. Just before 7:30 a.m. the lone female walked into the Esso Gas Station in the 7200 block of Park Street, pulled out a knife and demanded money. She fled after the attendant placed the cash inside the black bag she was carrying.

She was wearing a black hoody, with the hood up and a mural applique on the back, a black bandana which covered her face, and a black glove on her right hand.

Around 7:50 p.m. on the same day, police believe the same woman entered the Mountainview Grocery Store in the 8100 block of Manson Street, produced a knife and ordered the victim to place the cash in a black cloth grocery bag with long handles. The suspect was last seen getting into a dark, older model car.

She was described as fair skinned with dark hair, wearing a red sweater, white hoody and black mask to cover her face. The woman was also wearing black shoes, black yoga-style pants and a black glove on her right hand.

The third convenience shop in the 33000 block of First Avenue was targeted on Monday, March 14 around 8:40 p.m. Brandishing a knife, one female entered the store and demanded cash.

The suspect was described as Caucasian, about 5’5” tall with blond hair. She was carrying a black purse and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black pants and a scarf on her face.

She fled in a brown, older style sedan which was waiting for her outside.

Anyone with information about these robberies is asked to contact Mission RCMP at 604-826-7161. If you want to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. You do not have to testify in court and a cash reward of up to $2,000 will be paid for any information leading to an arrest or charge.
