Kelowna RCMP are searching for a suspect after an armed robbery early Sunday morning.

Shortly after 6:20 a.m., officers received a report of an armed robbery at the Mac’s convenience store at 2147 Richter St.

“The masked male suspect entered the store, brandished a silver pistol and demanded cash. The suspect fled the store on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash,” said Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey.
