The 7-Eleven convenience store on Immel Street was robbed early Monday morning.
According to Abbotsford Police Const. Ian MacDonald, a male suspect came into the store at about 4:15 a.m.. The suspect was wearing a welding mask and was brandishing a tire iron.
“He ultimately helps himself to the till and gets a very small amount of cash,” said MacDonald.
He explained that 7-Eleven has a “diligent” policy of putting money into the drop safe.
MacDonald said the thief only got a few dollars before he headed back out the door.
Two staff members were working at the time and neither were injured during the robbery.
