KAMLOOPS — Police are searching for a robbery suspect after 7-Eleven and the Gateway Travel Center were both robbed early Thursday morning.

Police say at about 3 a.m. a panic alarm at the 7-Eleven on Seymour Street was triggered after a lone Caucasian male, about 5'10” and covering his face with a white balaclava and black hoodie, entered the store and demanded money. About 30 minutes later a man with the same description robbed the Gateway Travel Center on Highway 1.

Neither of the store employees were injured and while police responded quickly to both locations they have been unable to locate the suspect.

The investigation is ongoing and police ask anyone with information to contact the Kamloops RCMP at (250)828-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online.
