KAMLOOPS - Police are searching for a suspect after responding to an armed robbery at a Chinese restaurant on the North Shore yesterday, July 15.

The suspect had earrings in both ears, short brown hair, tattoos on both arms and wore black pants, a black shirt, a black hat, sunglasses and a black handkerchief over the lower face.
