Armed with a snow shovel and disguised as the grim reaper, a man robbed the Peacocks Perch Liquor Store in Summerland.

RCMP said at approximately 10:30 p.m. on Monday a lone male demanded cash from the clerk.

“The clerk immediately called 9-1-1 and the suspect responded by grabbing a bottle of vodka and smashing it on the counter and then demanding money again,” said Sgt. Mona Kauffeld.

RCMP said the clerk provided the disguised man with an undisclosed amount of cash before he ran out of the store.

The suspect was described by RCMP as wearing a cream colour tunic/cloak with matching full hood that concealed his face. The man is believed to be taller than 5’7, reddish facial hair with possibly a beard or goatee, slim to average build and sounded as though he might have or maybe faking an English or Australian accent.

RCMP said they are continuing to investigate the matter and if anyone has information about the crime they can contact Summerland RCMP at 250-494-7416 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
