Sidney/North Saanich RCMP are investigating an armed robbery at Panago Pizza on Bevan Avenue Friday night.

A man entered the establishment just before 1 a.m., went directly behind the counter and enticed an employee to empty the till using what appeared to be a handgun in his right hand, said Cpl. Chris Manseau.

The suspect then fled the business with a small amount of cash obtained during the robbery.

Police described the suspect as a Caucasian, with blonde hair and blonde eyebrows. He had a medium athletic build and is believed to be in his late 20’s to early 30’s.

He was wearing a black long-sleeved hoodie, green camouflage pants, dark shoes, a balaclava, and gloves.

Officers and a police services dog searched the neighbourhood, but were unable to find the suspect.

Anyone who may have seen the individual in the area is asked to contact the Sidney/North Saanich RCMP at 250-656-3931 or Crime Stoppers.

    Pretty stupid to risk armed robbery charges for a hundred bucks.
