Public Advisory - Business Robberies

The Saskatoon Police Service is advising businesses to be aware of a number of recent robberies.

In the last week at least five incidents have been reported in which someone has entered the business, grabbed a number of items and fled the store into a vehicle waiting outside. The incidents have occurred between 5:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m., usually at large retail stores at Preston Crossing, 8th Street East, and Stonebridge. The vehicle descriptions are different in each case, however reports indicate there are always two people involved.

Police continue to investigate but are advising businesses and the public to watch for and report any suspicious activity. Anyone with information is asked to call the Saskatoon Police Service at 975-8300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
