On December 10, 2020 at a little before midnight, staff at the Supreme Convenience store in Port Hardy reported a theft. Staff stated that a male had entered the store and asked for two cartons of cigarettes. When the cashier brought the packs to him, the male proceeded to take the cigarettes without paying and threatened to hurt the cashier if she followed him outside. The male didn’t appear to have any weapons and at no time did he threaten to use one. The male then left in a black SUV. Officers arrived on scene soon after but were unable to locate the suspect. Officers were able to obtain a photo of the suspect from security footage as well as a description from the witnesses.
The male is described as:
- Wearing black hoodie and blue jeans
- Driving a black SUV (unknown make or model)
