Police ask business owners to be vigilant

The Burnaby RCMP says business owners and residents in North Burnaby should be vigilant after a string of robberies in the 1000 block of Gilmore Avenue.

The first incident occurred late in the afternoon of Dec. 23 when a male suspect pointed a knife at people in a small business before stealing an undisclosed amount of money. Police said the same suspect may be responsible for another four robberies in the same area. He’s described as Caucasian, approximately 5’8”, medium build, light-coloured hair, green eyes and 25-35 years-old. He may also be missing one of his lower front teeth.

If anyone has information, they should contact the Burnaby RCMP at 604-294-7922 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
