Langley RCMP are asking the public if they can help identify a woman caught on tape attempting to rob the CIBC in Walnut Grove last October. The well-dressed suspect is believed to be responsible for additional robberies in the Lower Mainland, said police.

On Oct. 28, at approximately 12:30 p.m., a woman in her 40s entered the bank and approached a teller.  She indicated she had a gun and demanded money. No weapon was seen by the teller and the woman became agitated as she waited — finally leaving without any money.

The suspect fled on foot and police dogs were unable to establish a successful track.

The suspect is described as approximately 45 years old, with blonde hair, wearing a black touque, purple rimmed glasses, a black sweater and black pants.

Police are asking the public to study the surveillance photographs and call them at 604-532-3200 if they can help identify the female who is believed to be responsible for other robberies in the Lower Mainland.  Those who need to remain anonymous can contact Crimestoppers at 1-800-222 TIPS.
