Burnaby RCMP are seeking the public's help in identifying a suspect in a recent supermarket robbery.

On Oct. 27 at about 6 p.m., the Choices Market store in southeast Burnaby was robbed by a lone male suspect. The man indicated he had a gun and took an undisclosed amount of cash before fleeing the store. Burnaby RCMP believe the suspect is responsible for several other similar robberies.

The suspect is described as a 45 to 60 year old white or Aboriginal man, five-foot-six to five-foot-ten in height, 200 to 260 lbs. with a stocky to heavy build. He has short greying hair and light-colored marks around his eyes. He often wears a baseball cap and aviator-style sunglasses.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to contact Burnaby RCMP at 604-294-7922 and reference file No. 2012-46695 or, to remain anonymous, BC Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or http://www.bccrimestoppers.com/.
