Red Deer City RCMP are searching for a man who robbed a jewelry store just as the Bower Place Shopping Centre was closing for business on Monday.

City RCMP said around 5 p.m. on Monday, a man entered the Charm Diamond Centre and cut a cable that was securing a jewelry display case. He removed the case filled with an undisclosed amount of jewelry and fled through an exit in the mall. Two employees were in the store and one customer. No one was injured.

The man was observed running with the display case towards the southeast exit doors of the mall. The male entered a newer model black two-door Volkswagen Beetle. The vehicle was seen driving in the parking lot towards Zellers. No licence plate was obtained because it was covered with tape.

The suspect was seen wearing a green ball cap with white writing and black sunglasses. He wore a grey shirt with dark sleeves, three-quarter length black shorts and white socks and black shoes.

The man is described as Caucasian, approximately 30 years old, 1.68 metres (five foot six), heavy build, unshaven blond short beard, flat facial features and curly short brown hair.

If you have information about this crime, contact Red Deer City RCMP at 403-343-5575.
