On Sunday, Dec. 1, 2019, at approximately 11:40 p.m., Southeast Division officers responded to the report of a robbery at a cannabis retailer in the area of 69 Street and 76 Avenue. It was reported to police that an unknown male entered the business and threatened a staff member with a weapon before fleeing the business with cash, cannabis and related products.

Since then, three similar robberies involving the same primary suspect took place at other cannabis retailers across the city, including a retailer in the area of 101 Avenue and 175 Street on Thursday, Dec. 12, 2019; a retailer in the area of Mark Messier Trail and Mistatim Way on Sunday, Dec. 29, 2019; and, most recently, a retailer in the area of 97 Street and 39 Avenue on Monday, Jan. 6, 2020.
