KAMLOOPS - Police need your help identifying two men who robbed a North Shore convenience store with a weapon early this morning and luckily one of them may have been caught on video.

Kamloops RCMP issued a photo of one of the men in a release saying they robbed the Mac's Convenience store on Tranquille Road at 6:30 a.m., Oct. 25, by brandishing a knife and making off with cash and cigarettes. No one was injured.

Police are also looking for a black 2010 Kia Sedan, possibly bearing B.C. license plate 923 XPH, which had been stolen earlier in the night from the South Shore.

The suspect bearing the knife was described as a Caucasian man, roughly 30 years old with a brown beard and no mustache. He is roughly 5'10" with a medium build and was wearing a green horizontal-striped hoodie, a camouflage bandana and a black cap.

"Police are asking the public’s assistance in locating these men and the stolen vehicle," Cpl. Jody Neuls of Kamloops RCMP said in the release. "Do not approach them, call 911,  250-828-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477."
