Salmo RCMP have released two photos captured on video surveillance of the suspect in the recent armed robbery at the Kootenay Savings Credit Union.

The photographs show that the man's coat was purple in colour and that he was wearing light tan coloured hiking style footwear.

"Investigation has also confirmed a silver/gray pickup truck departing the area shortly after the robbery towards Nelson on Hwy 6," Salmo RCMP corporal Debbie Postnikoff wrote in a press release. "The truck is possibly a Toyota Tacoma."

Police are requesting that if you know of anyone that may have been in the area at the time and drives or owns a similar truck, that you contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or the Salmo RCMP detachment at 250-357-2212.
