Sicamous RCMP seek second suspect in relation to robbery.

Sicamous RCMP have arrested one suspect and are seeking another in relation to an alleged residential robbery.

In a Feb. 21 report, Sgt. Murray McNeil says Brett Norrish, 22, has been charged with robbery and remains in custody until his next court appearance in Salmon Arm on Feb. 21.

Norrish was charged following an alleged robbery that occurred around midnight on Feb. 12.

“An investigation of the incident determined that two men attended a residence on Spruce Street in Sicamous,” said McNeil. “When invited inside the residence, one of the men allegedly produced a knife while the other stole cash and a small amount of marijuana.”

McNeil said the victim was not harmed and the investigation revealed the victim knew one of the men.

The second suspect has not yet been identified. McNeil said he is described as a bald Caucasian man in his mid 30s. He was wearing glasses and dark clothing at the time of the incident.

Anyone who has any information about this man’s identity is asked to contact the Sicamous RCMP at 250-836-2878.
