RCMP looking for courteous liquor store robber
RCMP are on the hunt for a courteous criminal who they believe is responsible for two recent Red Deer liquor store thefts.
In two cases from Sept. 8 and Sept. 12, a male wearing a blue jumpsuit akin to those worn in the oilfield and a mask made of a toque with homemade holes cut out for the eyes entered liquor stores in Red Deer looking for cash.
In one case he approached the cashier and asked for “money please,” in the second he asked “for all the money please.”
The first incident occurred at 6:19 p.m. at the Liquor Barn store located at 3430 50th Ave. and also involved the suspect stealing three bottles of vodka. On Sept. 12, the male entered the Taylor Plaza Liquor Store at 6730 Taylor Dr. at 6:28 p.m. and fled after taking cash.
The male suspect stands between 6’ and 6’2” tall and weighs approximately 175-200 pounds (80-90 kilograms). RCMP believe the same male is responsible for both thefts.
Anyone with information relating to the robberies is asked to call the Red Deer City RCMP at 403-343-5575 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
