The man who held up an Aldergrove bank on Jan. 21 may have been behind seven other robberies across the Canadian west, police believe.
Const. Kris Clark, a spokesperson for Southeast District RCMP, said the same man is thought to have robbed banks as far east as Saskatchewan since Dec. 1.
Police listed the suspected robberies:
â€¢ Princeton, B.C., Dec. 1
â€¢ Vernon, B.C., Dec. 9
â€¢ High River, Alta., Dec. 19
â€¢ Merritt, B.C., Dec. 23
â€¢ Swift Current, Sask., Jan. 8
â€¢ Lethbridge, Alta., Jan. 1
â€¢ Claresholm, Alta., Jan. 16
â€¢ Aldergrove, B.C., Jan. 21.
The robber has either claimed to have a weapon, or has produced a weapon in each of the robberies. None of the employees or customers at the banks and credit unions have been harmed, said Clark.
In all instances, the suspect was wearing dark clothing, a black toque and dark sunglasses. He has taken cash and run away on foot.
Police from three provinces are now attempting to identify the man, described as Caucasian, 25-35 years old, 5â€™6â€-6â€™ tall, and unshaven, with a brown goatee or beard.
Anyone with information on the suspect can call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200, or a tip line at 1-844-887-6287.
