Bank robbery investigation – six year anniversary

The Calgary Police Service continues to investigate a bank robbery that occurred in 2009 at a TD Canada Trust and is appealing for information just after the sixth anniversary since the offence occurred.

At approximately 7:20 a.m., on Saturday, Feb. 7, a male offender gained entry to the bank, located at 3012 17 Ave. S.E., after a member staff unlocked the main door.

The suspect brandished a handgun and forced staff members to open the vault. He was able to access a substantial quantity of cash before locking staff members in the vault and leaving the bank.

No one was injured, but the robbery left staff extremely shaken and has had a significant impact on their lives.

Police now believe that the offender was provided inside knowledge by a bank employee regarding the branches opening procedures which assisted him in the commission of the robbery.

Police are releasing new CCTV images and video of the incident in the hope that anyone with additional information will come forward. These images are available on The City of Calgary Newsroom.

The suspect is described as a Caucasian man, 6’ tall, 170 to190 lbs., wearing blue coveralls, a white hard hat, and a black ski mask.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Calgary Police Service Robbery Unit at 403-428-8787 or Crime Stoppers anonymously using any of the following methods:
