Mounties have yet to solve a Tuesday evening jewelry store robbery.
The Kelowna RCMP received a report Nov. 29 just before 5 p.m., of a hold up alarm at the Cooper Jewelry store located in the Orchard Plaza.
“The investigation is in the early stages, however police can confirm that the two employees inside the store were physically restrained while two suspects loaded and departed the store with an undisclosed amount of jewelry,” said Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey, in press release.
No weapons were produced.
“It is believed that the suspects, who may have been spooked by a member of the public outside the store, fled the area in a dark coloured SUV, headed towards Springfield Road,” said O’Donaghey.
The employees who had been bound for several minutes, did not appear to be injured.
At this time the suspects are both being described as dark skinned males, tall, of slender build, dressed in all black and one of whom was wearing a mask.
“The Kelowna RCMP GIS (General Investigations Section) has assumed conduct of the ongoing investigation,” said O’Donaghey.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Kelowna RCMP GIS (General Investigations Section) at 250-762-3300. Or remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, leaving a tip online at www.crimestoppers.net or by texting your tip to CRIMES (274637) ktown.
