File # 2022-2181

Police are investigating after an early morning robbery in Merville.

On February 15, 2022 at 6:15 a.m. Comox Valley RCMP received a 911-call reporting a robbery that had just occurred at the Merville General Store on the 6600-block of Island Highway North.

The victim reported that three people came into the store, one female and two males. The female suspect brandished what appeared to be a firearm and was described as having shoulder length frizzy maroon coloured hair wearing a black face mask and baggy clothing. One of the male suspects was described as having short dark hair wearing a baseball cap and black clothing.

Investigators believe the suspects fled the scene in a vehicle.

There may have been people out for a morning walk in the area or potentially people driving through who have dashcam footage. If that was you, please give us a call, said Cst. Monika Terragni, Comox Valley RCMP Media Relations Officer.

The Comox Valley RCMP Major Crime Unit is asking anyone with information or surveillance/dashcam footage to call the Comox Valley RCMP at (250) 338-1321.
