RCMP have released images taken from a surveillance video of an armed robbery at the Quality Inn North Hill Inn last week.
The images show one of the two suspects involved in the robbery on Aug. 12 at the hotel’s VLT lounge at 7150 Gaetz Ave.
He is described as a Caucasian man in his 20s about 1.8 metres (six-foot-two) tall with a thin build weighing 82 kg (180 pounds).
He has a pock-marked face and short brown hair above the ears. He was carrying a shotgun and wearing a face covering.
Images of the second suspect are not available. He is described as Caucasian between 1.73 metres and 1.78 metres (five-foot-eight and five-foot-10) tall with a stocky build.
He has short brown hair and he was wearing sunglasses and a face covering.
The suspects fled the hotel in a white 2015 Hyundai Sonata, which RCMP recovered at 1:50 p.m. in an alley near Norquay Street.
The car had been reported stolen on Aug. 3 from the Kentwood neighbourhood. It was abandoned and running with the doors open.
Police believe there was a second vehicle waiting for the suspects to help them escape.
