KAMLOOPS - Police are looking for a lone male suspect after responding to reports of an armed robbery at a liquor store in Valleyview Saturday night.
Just before 8:30 p.m. Saturday, July 19 a male suspect entered Big Daddy Liquor Store at 1829 Trans Canada Highway East, just east of Vicars Road, and demanded cash. He produced what staff believed to be a handgun before fleeing on foot.

He was also wearing a copper coloured wig, sunglasses and black Converse style shoes with a thick white rubber toe at the time of the robbery.
