Police are looking for leads to help them nab the masked robber who struck at a Port Hardy gas station.

Shortly after midnight, March 8,  Port Hardy RCMP responded to a robbery at the Port Hardy Esso Gas Station.

Employees reported an unknown male entered the store, wearing something over his face to conceal his identity.

The suspect was between 5-ft 10-in and 6-ft, medium build, dressed in blue jeans, a dark coloured hoodie-style sweatshirt and light-coloured, skateboarding-style shoes.

The male was successful in his robbery attempt and fled the store with an undisclosed amount of money.

Campbell River Forensic Identifications Services attended the scene and are assisting the Port Hardy RCMP as they continue to investigate.

Port Hardy RCMP is asking anyone with information about the crook or the crime to please contact them at 250-949-6335.
