The Coquitlam RCMP are searching for a suspect after the Safeway in Port Coquitlam was robbed last month.

According to Mounties, the robbery took place around 7 p.m. April 30 at the Shaughnessy Station store when the suspect approached a cashier and demanded money.

"No weapon was produced," said Coquitlam RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung. "He basically said something to the cashier, whcih caused the cashier to be fearful."

Chung would not confirm how much money was taken during the robbery but said only one register was robbed.

The suspect is described as a non-Caucasian male in his 20s with short black hair. At the time of the robbery he was wearing a silver chain, a black shirt, a white Adidas hoodie with black stripes, blue jeans and white runners.

Anyone with any information about the suspect is asked to call the Coquitlam RCMP at 604-945-1550 and quote file number 2012-11381. Those who wish to provide information anonymously can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or go online at www.solvecrime.ca.
