Two arrested for credit union robbery
Two male suspects are in custody facing robbery charges thanks to an alert Burnaby RCMP officer
Just before 2 p.m. on Oct. 26, the Burnaby Mountie noticed two males behaving suspiciously near Kingsway and Marlborough Avenue.
One of the males entered a Vancity credit union and left shortly afterwards, getting into a waiting taxi along with the second male. The officer then learned the Vancity had been robbed of a large quantity of money.
The officer stopped the taxi just as it entered New Westminster. Both suspects were arrested and the stolen money was recovered. The suspects were remanded in custody and were to appear in court on Oct. 29.
Police are investigating whether the suspects are responsible for other recent robberies in the area.
