Mission police are looking for two suspects who held up Chances Mission casino on Horne Street Nov. 28 around 11:30 p.m.

One suspect, brandishing a black handgun, approached the front counter and demanded money, while the second held the front door open. The male suspects were wearing gloves, masks and hoodies.

Both escaped in a grey minivan with an undisclosed amount of money, according to police.

Nobody was injured inside the casino, said Mission RCMP Sgt. Glen Carrier.

Minutes after the robbery, a grey minivan was reported to be on fire near Stave Lake Road and Fifth Avenue. Police have seized the vehicle and are conducting a forensic examination to determine if it was used in the getaway.

Mission RCMP are also investigating a report of a man with a handgun behind 14 Avenue Pub earlier in the evening.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call Mission RCMP at 604-826-7161 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
