A masked man carrying a gun robbed a Lake Country store last Thursday night.

The suspect, dressed in a tan Carhartt jacket and carrying a blue duffel bag, entered the store on the 9500 block of Main Street just before 11 p.m. on February 24 and threatened employees with a gun. He stole cash from the store and several bottles of premium liquor and fled on foot. There were two employees working at the time and neither was injured.

RCMP Police Dog Services searched the area, but the suspect was not found.

“The Lake Country RCMP is grateful that the employees were not injured in this theft,” said Const. Michael Della-Paolera, Kelowna RCMP Media Relations Office. “If anyone has any information about this incident or this suspect, please call Lake Country RCMP.”

The man is believed to be in his mid-30s, around 6 feet tall and of average build. He wore a Carhartt-style hoodie jacket with a black hoodie, black jeans, steel-toed work boots, black gloves, and carried a blue and black duffel bag.

The investigation is being conducted by Lake Country RCMP General Investigation Services.
