KAMLOOPS - RCMP are appealing for help in finding two machete-wielding females who robbed a store in Kamloops, B.C.

Police say two women working at the store were starting to comply when one of the robbers pepper sprayed them.

The robbers took off with cigarettes and cash during the heist on Jan. 6.

They are described as First Nations females who wore dark hoodies and gloves.

A police service dog was unable to track them down.

Mounties believe they may have tried to sell the stolen cigarettes.
