RCMP searching for beer store bandit

Williams Lake RCMP are seeking the public's assistance locating a man who attempted to steal two cases of beer from the Overlander Beer and Wine Store.

On March 14 at approximately 10:52 p.m. police arrived at the store and were advised that a male wearing dark clothing with plastic bags over his shoes, and a bandana over his face, entered the store.

"The male then attempted to steal two cases of beer, but was stopped after a brief altercation with another customer," Williams Lake RCMP Const. Brenden Charna said in a release.

Police said the man then fled on foot with another male, who was waiting for him in the parking lot.

"Fortunately, no one was hurt and all property was recovered," Charna said.

If you have any information regarding this incident contact Charna at 250-392-6211 or anonymously through Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
