Halifax District RCMP is asking for the public's help to solve a robbery that occurred on December 26 at a business in Timberlea.

Just after 5 a.m., Halifax District RCMP were dispatched to a robbery at a service station in the 1800 block of St. Margaret's Bay Rd. At approximately 4 a.m. the suspect entered the station, armed with a knife, and handcuffed the employee to a freezer. The suspect left the station with a quantity of cash and cigarettes. Just before 5 a.m. a client noticed the employee who was still handcuffed and alerted police.

The suspect is described as a white male in his late 20s, clean shaven, approximately 5-foot-4 to 6-feet tall with a thin build. He was wearing a grey Nike jacket with a hood, a ball cap with black and white checker pattern on the bill of the cap, dark blue jeans and blue sneakers.

The investigation is ongoing and being led by the RCMP/HRP Integrated General Investigation Section of the Criminal Investigation Division.
