Police are on the hunt for a suspect in nine bank robberies over the last month in Vancouver and Burnaby.
Sergeant Randy Fincham says the suspect has hit nine banks in Vancouver and Burnaby over the past month.
“We’re talking about a bank robbery, we’re talking about a person who’s getting a very small amount of money. Certainly there is no reward in bank robberies. With most bank robberies I would say the vast, vast majority of bank robberies… It’s only a matter of time until you do get caught.”
He is described as South Asian, in his 20s, 5-foot-5, with a skinny build and short black hair.
In all of the robberies, the suspect claimed he was armed with a weapon.
Fincham says it’s important that police identify the suspect as soon as possible, but says he’s police believe he can’t hide forever.
“We have very sophisticated video footage of the banks as well as forensic evidence we gather at the banks, it is only a matter of time until we find this person.”
