Witnesses described the suspect as a Caucasian man, tall, skinny and bald. He was seen wearing a black hoodie under a dark coloured jacket, a pair of blue jeans and a dark pair of sunglasses.

“Thanks to keen witnesses in the area at the time, RCMP located and seized the stores cash register drawer abandoned nearby,” said Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey of the Kelowna RCMP.
