Police say Okanagan cannabis stores should review their safety procedures after two people robbed a Kelowna store at gunpoint.

A man and woman entered a Flora Cannabis location on Lawrence Avenue just before it closed at 11 p.m. on Nov. 7 and demanded money, say Kelowna RCMP in a news release.

“The pair threatened the employee with a firearm and fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash and store merchandise,” says Cpl. Tammy Lobb in the statement.

“Kelowna RCMP and Police Dog Services searched the area, but were unable to locate the suspects. No one was physically injured during this incident. Police are releasing images of the suspects in hopes that the public can aid in identifying them.”

Police describe the two suspects as:

  • A tall and muscular Caucasian man wearing a dark grey Under Armour hoodie, black overalls, black gloves, and a mask with a skull design.
  • A Caucasian woman, average height and small build; she was wearing an orange or faded red Lululemon hoodie with light blue jeans. The woman has frizzy red hair and black framed glasses.
