Edmonton police are searching for three people after an armed robbery at a west end coin shop on Wednesday afternoon.

At around 3:30 p.m., police were called to a robbery at a coin and currency business in the area of 125 Street and 118 Avenue.

Three armed suspects entered the business and forced a store clerk to hand over a large amount of antique coins and currency notes, which had “significant value,” police said in a news release on Wednesday night. Police did not say what the suspects were armed with.

Police said they do not have descriptions of the suspects, but believe they left the area in a stolen 2011 white Honda Pilot SUV, similar to the one pictures below. Police said the vehicle bears Alberta licence plate BST4693 and has a National Geographic sticker on the rear bumper.
