The search for a Kelowna bank robbery suspect has ended.
RCMP have taken a man into police custody who faces potential criminal charges and is expected to appear in court later today.
RCMP swarmed downtown Kelowna Monday afternoon after reports were received of a robbery just committed at the Bank of Nova Scotia located in the 400 block of Bernard Avenue.
“After reviewing the bank’s video surveillance footage captured of the robbery, investigators were able to positively identified their suspect as a 31-year-old Kelowna man,” says RCMP Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey.
O’Donaghey says at around 1:10 am on April 24th, Kelowna RCMP general duty officers responded to a call of a disturbance in the 600 block of Lequime Road in Kelowna.
“Our general duty officers arrived on scene and immediately recognized the subject of that complaint as their robbery suspect, who was taken into police custody without incident,” adds Cpl. O’Donaghey.
Police are looking for a suspect after a brazen daytime bank robbery today in Kelowna.
A man entered the Scotia Bank in the 400 block of Bernard demanded money from a teller and fled with cash around 12:15.
Police are looking for a Caucasian man, about 6 feet tall, 25-30 years of age, with a scruffy face, brown hair and brown eyes.
