Surrey business robbed

  • Surrey business robbed

Mounties in Surrey are hoping to speak with anyone with dashcam footage of the 9200 block of 120 Street on Friday evening after a business was robbed at gunpoint.

Police say two men wearing masks entered the unnamed business with what appeared to be firearms, spoke with one of the employees, and stole a cellphone as they walked out.

Investigators say no one was injured in this incident, which appears to be targeted, but the motive is unclear.

Anyone who was in the area on Friday between 5 and 5:30 p-m and has dashcam footage, is being asked to contact Surrey R-C-M-P.
