Mounties continue to investigate the armed robbery of an Alix hotel and are renewing calls for public tips.
On Nov. 6, Bashaw RCMP were called to the hotel for a reported armed robbery. At 12:52 p.m., a male entered the hotel bar carrying what appeared to be a sawed off firearm.
Police said he pointed the firearm at patrons and a hotel worker and demanded cash from the till and the video lottery terminals.
Once the man received the cash, he fled out the front and left in a Chevrolet pick-up truck.
No one was injured in the incident and patrols by Bashaw, Stettler and Blackfalds RCMP did not locate the vehicle.
Police describe the suspect as a Caucasian male about 1.82 metres (six feet) tall. He wore dark blue coveralls with a reflective stripe and was masked.
Anyone who recognizes the truck or has information about the investigation is asked to contact the Bashaw RCMP at 780-372-3793 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or report it online at www.tipsubmit.com.
