Employee ‘extremely shaken’ after armed robbery at Kelowna business

The RCMP is searching for the man who robbed a Kelowna business on Monday night.

It happened shortly after 9:30 pm at a business in the 2400 block of Hwy 97 North.


According to the RCMP, the suspect entered the business and allegedly produced what appeared to be a handgun before demanding cash.

After the employee complied with his demands, he fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of money.

“Fortunately, no one was injured in this robbery, but the worker was extremely shaken by this incident,” said Cpl. Jocelyn Noseworthy.

Despite conducting a thorough search of the surrounding area, the suspect wasn’t located, which has the RCMP turning to the public for help.
