This holiday season, all of our Supporters are entered to win an $800 Shopping Spree Giveaway!

A man in a ski mask stormed a Fort St. John convenience store earlier this morning and made off with cash and cigarettes.

Fort St. John RCMP say the robbery happened around 3:15 a.m. at the Mac’s store on 100 Avenue. The masked man was carrying a kitchen knife and demanded the cash and cigarettes before fleeing the scene on foot, according to police.

In a release, Cpl. Jodi Shelkie says a young man came into the store and left as the robbery was happening, and are asking for the public’s help in locating and identifying┬áthe witness.

Police have also released a surveillance image from the robbery, and describe the suspect as wearing a “distinctive red and white hoodie.”

The man was also wearing black sweat pants, and white sneakers, police say.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 250-787-8100 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
