Man charged in connection with eight weekend robberies

The Calgary Police Service Economic Crimes Unit and Centralized General Investigations Unit (CGIU) have charged one man in relation to four commercial robberies and four bank robberies in Calgary.

On Monday, Nov. 20, 2017, police asked for the public’s help to identify and locate a suspect believed to be connected to four commercial robberies that occurred over the weekend. In each robbery, the suspect used a knife to threaten staff, while directing them to place money into a bag. The businesses were:

  • Domino’s Pizza, 14 Richard Way S.W.
  • Biz Big Cheese Kensington, 207 – 10 Street N.W.
  • Dave’s Liquor, 1540 – 16 Avenue N.W.
  • Liquor Depot, 22 Midlake Boulevard S.E.

Later on Monday, Nov. 20, 2017, at approximately 6:20 p.m., it is alleged that the same suspect robbed a TD Canada Trust located in the 5600 block of Signal Hill Centre S.W. The suspect was quickly located by HAWCS, who followed the suspect’s vehicle until District 8 patrol officers on the ground were able to safely apprehend him.

Upon arrest, investigators discovered evidence leading to them believe the suspect was also responsible for three additional bank robberies that occurred on Sunday, Nov. 19, 2017, and Monday, Nov. 20, 2017. The locations of these robberies were:

  • CIBC, 0-100 block of Shawville Boulevard S.E.
  • TD Canada Trust, 6400 block of Macleod Trail S.W.
  • TD Canada Trust, 4400 block of Memorial Drive S.E.

Kee Wing TUNG, also known as Stephen TUNG, 55, of Calgary, is charged with eight counts of robbery.

Investigators would like to thank the public and the media for their assistance with this case.
