M&M Meat Shops victim of attempted robbery, following robbery of Shell gas station a day prior

Two Vernon businesses robbed in a 15-hour period could be connected.

M&M Meat Shops, in the Vernon Square Plaza, was the victim of an attempted robbery Monday morning just before 10 a.m.

“The lone male approached the teller and demanded cash, when the teller refused the suspect left the store,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesperson.

Monday’s attempt follows a robbery at the Shell gas station in the 3800 block of 32nd Street Sunday around 7 p.m.

“The female employee reported that a native male came in and demanded cash and cigarettes,” said Molendyk.

“The physical description of the suspect is similar to the male involved in the robbery (Monday).”

The suspect is described as being between 19 to 22 years old, 5’8” tall with black hair and brown eyes of average build. He wore a black windbreaker with track pants and a white hat.

No weapon was produced or indicated in either incident.

Officers are following up on some leads, but at the time of this report no arrests have been made.
