High Prairie RCMP are looking for a male suspect in relation to a robbery at the High Prairie Esso gas station and convenience store Jan. 25.

Cpl. Curtis Peters, RCMP Media Relations Group, says the robbery occurred at about 6 a.m. when a male entered the store and brandished a long-armed firearm [rifle].

“An undisclosed amount of cash was taken,” says Peters.

No one was harmed in the robbery.

Peters says the man was wearing a black ski mask, hooded jacket and jeans and therefore difficult to identify. He is about 5’10” tall. It is believed he left in a van but surveillance tape will be checked to confirm.
