SURREY â€” Surrey robbers have been targeting pharmacies throughout the city over the past few weeks.
â€œIn each of the robberies a weapon is produced, but not used,â€ Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet said. No injuries have been reported, so far.
â€œThere are various descriptions of the suspects and investigators are looking at the possibility of these crimes being related to one group.â€
Police ask anyone with information to contact the Surrey RCMP robbery section at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
In the meantime, police say that in the event of a robbery, clerks shouldnâ€™t make sudden movements, argue with the robber or assume he or she isnâ€™t armed.
â€œTry to pay close attention to what the robber looks like,â€ Paquet advises. â€œDonâ€™t stare, just observe. Only activate a panic alarm if it is safe to do so. Donâ€™t be a hero.â€
