Calgary, AB,

Police ask for help to identify bank robbery suspect

The Calgary Police Service is asking for the public’s help to identify a man believed to be responsible for multiple bank robberies in Calgary.

Between Nov. 18, 2017, and Jan. 24, 2018, a man walked into five different banks across the city and demanded money from the teller, while claiming to be armed with a firearm. In each case, he was given an undisclosed amount of money and fled the bank.

No firearm was ever produced and no one was injured in any of the robberies.

Police are releasing a photo of a vehicle that was seen leaving the scene of some of the robberies in the hope that someone will recognize it. The vehicle is believed to be a 2009 to 2014 model, silver or grey Ford F-150 extended cab pickup truck.

The suspect is described as Caucasian, in his mid-40s to early-50s, 5’6” to 5’10” tall, with an average build, pale complexion and salt and pepper-coloured facial stubble. The suspect appeared to slouch as he walked.

Police also have reason to believe that the suspect may either live in or frequently visit Airdrie in addition to spending time in Calgary.

Anyone with information about the identity of the suspect is asked to call the Calgary Police Service non-emergency line at 403-266-1234 or the Robbery Tip Line at 403-428-8787. Tips can also be left anonymously by contacting Crime Stoppers through either of the following methods:
