Mac's C-stores Become Target of Cigarette Robberies

SURREY, British Columbia -- Since the middle of March, one individual is believed to be responsible for seven robberies at Mac's Convenience Store locations throughout Surrey, British Columbia—and an eighth in Langley—and police are seeking the public's assistance in identifying the person. Using a large kitchen knife, the robber demands cigarettes, orders clerks to lie down on the floor and then flees the store, according to a report by the Surrey North Delta Leader.

"We're very concerned, obviously because there is the potential for either someone else in the store or the clerk to be harmed," said Surrey RCMP Sgt. Roger Morrow in the report, noting so far there has been no direct confrontation between the robber and victims.

He said the only common denominator in the cases is that they've all taken place at Mac's, although they have not been able to figure out why that is, he told the newspaper.

In-store surveillance cameras have captured the robber in action, and he appears to be in his 30s, 6-foot, with a medium build.

Anyone with any information about the person responsible is asked to call Surrey RCMP at (604) 599-0502, or Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
