Public assistance sought after armed robbery in Vernon

RCMP make one arrest in Chase related to the incident Wednesday

RCMP are investing an armed robbery at a Vernon business.

On Wednesday at about 6 p.m., three men entered the Black Crow Herbal Dispensary on 48th Avenue.

“The men produced handguns and left with an undisclosed amount of money and a quantity of marijuana products, fleeing the scene in a vehicle,” said Const. Jocelyn Noseworthy, with the RCMP.

“No one was injured in this robbery.”

The investigation led to the arrest of an adult male early Friday at a residence in Chase. He is currently in RCMP custody.

“This is an ongoing investigation, and no further information is being released at this time,” said Noseworthy.

RCMP are asking anyone with information regarding this robbery to call 545-7171 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
