Kamloops RCMP are on the hunt for two suspects involved in an armed robbery at a business this past weekend.

Police say the robbery happened at a business in the 1200 block of Summit Drive on Saturday, Jan. 2, around 6:10 p.m., according to an RCMP media release.

The suspect, who was wearing black clothing except his pants which were grey, approached the employee with a knife and demanded money, while the other suspect wearing a burnt orange Carhartt jacket  with a grey hoodie underneath, was armed with bear spray and guarded the door.

Both suspects were wearing masks.

The two men were confirmed to have been driving a stolen grey SUV, which had a loaded firearm inside when found unoccupied by police on the North Shore on Monday.

The vehicle is currently being analyzed by the Kamloops Forensic Identification Team.
