Police searching for suspect in Ladner business robbery

ON Saturday, December 7, shortly before noon, Delta Police were called to a report of a robbery of a business on the 5400-block of Ladner Trunk Road.

A suspect presented a weapon to an employee of the business and demanded money. He received a small amount of cash and then fled the scene.

“Fortunately the employee did not receive any physical injuries, and it appears there were no threats to the public as this incident unfolded,” said Cris Leykauf, spokesperson for Delta Police, on Monday.

The integrated police dog unit was unable to locate a track. Police are working with Real Time Intelligence Centre-BC and other law enforcement agencies as the investigation proceeds.

If anyone saw anything suspicious around 11:45 a.m. to 12 p.m. around the 5400-block of Ladner Trunk Road on December 7, and has not yet spoken with police, they are encouraged to do so. Call 604-946-4411 or, if you wish to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
