Police in Kimberley are looking for a man believed to be connected to a gas station robbery.
The Shell Station on Ross Street was robbed Tuesday night around 7 pm.
Sergeant Chris Newel says a man entered the store asking for cigarettes, but said he left his card on his bike.
When he returned, he gave the clerk a note, demanding money and claiming he had a weapon.
“No weapon was ever seen, nor do we believe there actually was one, but he did take off with the cigarettes and the Cliff bar on a bicycle,” Newel says. “We have obtained surveillance photos from a neighbouring business. Turns out he was in there just prior to the incident.”
The suspect is described as 5’2″ and was last seen wearing a black hoody and pants and had a blond goatee.
