The man who robbed instant teller customers twice in two days in a Walnut Grove neighbourhood is described as a Caucasian in his late 20’s, 5’9,” stocky build, with face stubble.

He was wearing a blue plaid shirt, blue jeans, sunglasses and a hat when he used a firearm to rob clients using the Coast Capital Savings bank machine outside regular business hours.

The first robbery occurred on July 31 around 10:30 p.m., and the second robbery took place the next morning (Aug. 1) around 7:30 a.m.

In the first robbery, a man using bank machine was approached by the armed suspect who demanded he hand over his cash. The victim complied and the suspect fled on foot westbound towards the Walnut Grove Community Centre.

The victim complied and the suspect fled on foot westbound towards the Walnut Grove Community Center.

In the second instance, the victim gave the suspect a small sum of money and once again, the suspect fled on foot.

A police dog lost the trail a short distance away where officers believe the suspect either entered a vehicle or mounted a bicycle.

Anyone with information about the robberies is asked to call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200 or Crime Stoppers:

There are four ways to leave an “anonymous tip” with Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
