An armed man robbed the 7-11 in Terrace last night.
Terrace RCMP say shortly before 1 a.m., a man pointed what is believed to be an airsoft rifle at store employees and made off with cash and lottery tickets.
The suspect is described as a Caucasian man wearing a scarf, green plaid jacket with a hood, and a black baseball hat.
Officers and police dogs tracked him into the railyard and then towards the Sande Overpass where the track was eventually lost.
It’s believed the suspect used an airsoft gun, which shoots plastic pellets, but police say they have to treat all incidents as if the weapons are real.
Constable Angela Rabut says regardless if it’s a real weapon or not, the charge of armed robbery remains the same.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Terrace RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
