Armed robbery at Teejay's, police ask witnesses to come forward

Castlegar RCMP is investigating an armed robbery that occurred on Feb. 12 at a downtown business. At approximately 6 p.m., two suspects entered Teejay's grocery store on 4th Street with a replica firearm and approached the clerk. They took her to the back room and bound her arms, then proceeded to steal many items including cash, lottery tickets, and cigarettes. The males fled the store and may have gotten into a smaller size, light colored pick up truck behind Kootenay Savings.

The store clerk was not physically injured.

“We have a variety of leads we're following up,” said Castlegar RCMP Sgt. Laurel Mathew.

The suspects in this incident are described as:

Male 1 - approximately 40 years old, approximately 5'8" 240 pounds, wearing a red hoodie, jeans, black shoes, a ski mask, and sunglasses.

Male 2 - approximately 50 years old, 5'10, 160 pounds, wearing a grey hoodie, jeans, a ski mask and reading glasses. This male had white facial hair that could be seen underneath his mask.

If anyone has any information regarding this crime, please contact the Castlegar RCMP at 250-365-7721.
