Man charged with five counts of robbery

The Calgary Police Service Robbery Unit has charged a man in connection with three bank robberies that occurred in March.

On Friday, March 18, 2016, at approximately 10:30 a.m., an unknown man entered the CIBC located in the 10,000 block of Southport Road S.W., and approached a teller demanding money. He then approached a second teller and made another demand for money. He was given an undisclosed amount of money before fleeing the bank.

On Monday, March 21, 2016, at approximately 12:15 p.m., an unknown man entered the CIBC located in the 2300 block of Centre Street N., and approached a teller demanding money. He was given an undisclosed amount of money, which included a dye pack. The dye pack exploded and the man was last seen getting into a vehicle before fleeing the scene.

Later that day, at approximately 2:45 p.m., an unknown man entered the Scotiabank located in the 1900 block of Southland Drive S.W., and approached two tellers demanding money. The man was given an undisclosed amount of money before fleeing the bank.

Investigators in the CPS Robbery Unity believe the same man is responsible for all three incidents.
