UPDATE: Armed robbery at Chances Casino in Mission

Mission RCMP members are looking for suspects involved in an armed robbery at Chances Mission casino

Mission police are looking for two suspects who held up Chances Mission casino on Horne Street Nov. 28 around 11:30 p.m.

One suspect, brandishing a black handgun, approached the front counter and demanded money, while the second held the front door open. The male suspects were wearing gloves, masks and hoodies.

Both escaped in a grey minivan with an undisclosed amount of money, according to police.

Nobody was injured inside the casino, said Mission RCMP Sgt. Glen Carrier.

Minutes after the robbery, a grey minivan was reported to be on fire near Stave Lake Road and Fifth Avenue. Police have seized the vehicle and are conducting a forensic examination to determine if it was used in the getaway.

Mission RCMP are also investigating a report of a man with a handgun behind 14 Avenue Pub earlier in the evening.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call Mission RCMP at 604-826-7161 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
