Title: Do you recognize this man? (with photos)
Surrey, Langley, and Chilliwack RCMP along with Abbotsford Police Department are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a suspect in a series of alleged bank robberies across the Lower Mainland in the month of March and April.
On March 3rd in Surrey, March 17th in Langley and Abbotsford, and April 3rd in Yarrow, financial institutions found themselves victims of a robbery. In all three instances, a similarly described man is alleged to have produced a robbery note and made off with an undisclosed amount of cash prior to police arrival. Thankfully, no violence was used during any of the incidents and no employees or clients were injured. The surveillance cameras at all three locations were able to photograph the alleged suspect.
Depicted in the surveillance photos (see attached) is a man described as possibly South Asian or Filipino, in his 30s, 5’8″, with a medium build, dark beard and moustache, and wearing a black toque, sunglasses, black gloves, black jacket and black pants. Police believe it is the same man in all three incidents.
“Collaborating with our policing partners is an essential tool in solving multi-jurisdictional robbery series like this one,” says Surrey RCMP Corporal Scotty Schumann. “The goal is to identify this suspect quickly with the public’s help and hold him to account for his actions.”
