Sylvan Lake RCMP have released a composite drawing in hopes of identifying the culprit responsible for an armed robbery at the Booster Juice in Ryders Ridge Plaza last week.

Police received a call just after 8 p.m. on Sept. 16 of a lone male entering the business and demanding cash from the clerk on duty. The man then left the store and headed in an unknown direction carrying an undetermined amount of cash.

Police describe the suspect as a white male about five feet 10 inches tall. He’s believed to be in his late 20s or early 30s, and was wearing a black toque, dark sunglasses and a black long-sleeved shirt at the time of the incident.

Sylvan Lake RCMP responded to the call with assistance from Red Deer RCMP Police Dog Services and Blackfalds RCMP.
