Burnaby RCMP seek bank robbery suspect
Burnaby RCMP is asking for the public's help in identifying and finding a suspect in a bank robbery earlier this year.
Officers responded to a report of an armed robbery at a bank in the 3700-block of Canada Way, near Boundary Road, on Thursday, Feb. 6 at about 6 p.m.
A lone male suspect had entered the bank and left with an undisclosed amount of money before fleeing on foot. "No weapon was produced however the threat of violence was used," said Staff Sgt. Major John Buis in a press release.
Despite extensive patrols in the area, police could not locate the suspect.
After speaking with witnesses and watching security surveillance video, Burnaby Mounties believe the suspect is an Asian man in his late 20s or early 30s. He had dark facial stubble, a black faux mohawk haircut, and was wearing a white Nike baseball cap with a black swoosh, a dark grey Nike zip hoodie with a white swoosh, and casual pants.
Anyone with information on the suspect or the robbery is asked to call the Burnaby RCMP Strike Force at 604-294-7631, or to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
