RCMP seek to identify suspect in Shediac bank robbery
Shediac RCMP are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect involved in an armed robbery Thursday afternoon at a bank in Shediac, New Brunswick
The man broke into a bank on Main Street shortly before 1 p.m., pretending to be armed and demanded money from one of the tellers, according to a statement from Corporal Gabriel Deveau.
The suspect fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash before police arrived, Deveau said. No one was injured in the incident and no weapons were apparently shown.
The RCMP has released these images of the alleged thief taken by the bank’s CCTV cameras. Police hope information from the public can help identify him or provide additional information to aid the investigation.
Police and witnesses describe the man as between 5ft 2in and 5ft 7in (157 to 170 centimeters) tall with an average build. He had short brown hair and was wearing a camouflage-patterned cap, sunglasses, a black hoodie and blue jeans at the time of the alleged crime.
Anyone with information about the theft or who recognizes the person in the photo is asked to call Shediac RCMP at (506) 533-5151. Information may also be provided anonymously via New Brunswick Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
