Date:   Jul 28, 2015

Victoria BC – VicPD Detectives are investigating an armed robbery that occurred at a marijuana dispensary in Victoria last week, and are releasing the video of the robbery in hopes of identifying the person responsible.

On Thursday, July 23rd, at approximately 9 p.m., a lone male entered the “Farmacy”, located at 3055 Scott Street, and pointed what appeared to be a hand gun and a knife at the clerk. The suspect gave the clerk a black garbage bag and ordered them to fill it with drugs and cash. Once the clerk had filled the bag, the suspect ran to his idling vehicle and sped away. He was last seen near North Dairy and Shelbourne streets.

VicPD Detectives have been investigating since the robbery occurred and are hoping the release of the video will aid in identifying the suspect and the vehicle.

The suspect is believed to be a Caucasian man, approximately 5-feet, 8-inches tall with a tattoo around his right eye.

His get-away vehicle appears to be a 2006 to 2009 tan-coloured Pontiac Torrent with no license plates.
