In North Vancouver two males robbed a gas station of cash and cigarettes with police now asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspects.

On Tuesday, March 7th, 2017 at approximately 8:00 pm two unknown culprits entered the North Vancouver gas station located in the 1700 block of Capilano Road and threatened the clerk with harm if both money and cigarettes were not handed over. The masked suspects claimed they had a gun and a knife, neither of which were produced. The culprits were last seen running from the area on foot towards Marine Drive with an undisclosed amount of money and cigarettes.
