Help identify robbery suspect

**** RCMP Media Release

Halifax District RCMP is asking for public help to identify the suspect in a robbery that happened yesterday morning at a business in the 600 block of Sackville Dr. in Lower Sackville.

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