A man faces charges in connection with a bank robbery that occurred in Bedford in April 2012.
On April 28 at 10:20 a.m., police responded to the CIBC located at 1600 Bedford Highway after a man entered the bank, ordered customers and staff to the floor, and demanded cash. Though no weapon was seen, witnesses believed the man was in possession of a hand gun based on the way he was holding his hands. The suspect exited the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash and got into the driver’s seat of a black Ford F150. No one was injured during the incident.
Officers assigned to the HRP/RCMP Integrated General Investigation Section conducted a lengthy and complex investigation into this matter. The suspect turned himself in at Police Headquarters on April 22, 2013 where he was arrested without incident and held for court.
