Canby PD looking into robbery


Canby Police are investigating the Saturday evening armed robbery of the La Mixteca market on Southwest First Avenue.

A man wearing a black hoodie and bandana over his face entered the store at 8:35 p.m., brandishing a gun.

Police Lt. Jorge Tro said the robber asked two market employees for money from the cash register. He ended up grabbing the cash box from the register and ran from the store.

Witnesses described the robber as about 6-feet tall, 170 pounds, medium build.

At this time, Canby Police do not believe this robbery is related to similar crimes in neighboring communities, Tro said.

Anyone who saw something out of the ordinary or has any information regarding the crime should call Canby Police at 503-266-1104.
