Masked armed robbers loot coin store

Two armed men wearing masks robbed Western Coin & Stamp last Wednesday, Jan. 9 and made off with an undisclosed number of coins.

Richmond RCMP Cpl. Sherrdean Turley said around 6 p.m., Mounties were called to a report of an armed robbery at the store, at the corner of No. 3 Road and Cook, and next to the Staples office supply store.

Armed with a firearm, the men walked into the business, and proceeded to smash the display cases and took an undisclosed number of coins.

Two shots were fired in the process, but nobody was injured, Turley said.

The suspects fled in a vehicle, which was found the next day.

Police are continuing to investigate, and are asking anyone with information to call them at 604-278-1212.

Though the incident happened a week ago, Richmond Mounties did not issue a press release about the incident, and The Review only found out about it after being alerted by a local reader.
