One man, one MO, three different bank heists.
Langley Mounties are being joined by Surrey RCMP and Abbotsford Police in a search for a suspected thief identified in at least three robberies in the Lower Mainland this month.
On March 3 in Surrey, and on March 17 in Langley and Abbotsford, financial institutions reported robberies where a man produced a note demanding cash, then made off with the money before police arrived.
Surveillance images from all three locations were able to catch the alleged suspect, and it looks like the same man was responsible in all three incidents, said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schumann.
The man is described as possibly South Asian or Filipino, in his 30s, standing about 5 ft. 8 in. tall, with a medium build, dark beard and moustache, and wearing a black toque, sunglasses, black gloves, black jacket, and black pants.
“Thankfully, no violence was used during any of the incidents and no employees or clients were injured,” Schumann said.
“Collaborating with our policing partners is an essential tool in solving multi-jurisdictional robbery series like this one, he added. “The goal is to identify this suspect quickly, with the public’s help and hold him to account for his actions.
