Police search for robbery suspect

Nanaimo RCMP are searching for a white male in his 40s following the robbery of the Howard Johnson Harbourside Hotel Tuesday.

The suspect jumped over the hotel’s front desk at 4:15 p.m., stole an undisclosed amount of money and fled on foot toward the Pearson Bridge.

A police dog unit was unable to track the suspect due to the heavy volume of traffic.

The suspect is described as six feet tall, clean shaven with a lean build.

He was wearing a grey, long-sleeved pullover sweater, khaki shorts, brown hiking boots, a grey, flat-brimmed hat and sunglasses

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345 or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or www.nanaimocrimestoppers.com.
