The Victoria Police Department have released video footage of an armed robbery at a medical marijuana dispensary last week in hopes the public can help identify the person responsible.

On Thursday, July 23 at approximately 9 p.m., a man entered Farmacy (3055 Scott St.) and pointed what appeared to be a hand gun and a knife at the clerk. The suspect gave the clerk a black garbage bag and ordered them to fill it with drugs and cash.

Once the clerk filled the bag, the suspect ran into his vehicle and sped away.

The male suspect is believed to be Caucasian, approximately five feet, eight inches tall with a tattoo around his right eye.

His get-away vehicle appears to be a 2006 to 2009 tan-coloured Pontiac Torrent with no license plates. The suspect was last seen near North Dairy and Shelbourne Streets.

If you have any information on the suspect, the vehicle or the crime, please call VicPD’s non-emergency number at 250-995-7654 or through CrimeStopper at 1-800-222-8477.
