Bandana-clad men robbed Chilliwack BMO

Two masked men wearing bandanas robbed the Bank of Montreal on Vedder Road Friday at just past noon and then took off in a white GMC Safari van, say police.

RCMP are looking for anyone who may have witnessed a bank robbery in Chilliwack on Friday afternoon.

Two masked men wearing bandanas robbed the Bank of Montreal on Vedder Road Friday at just past noon and then took off in a white GMC Safari van, according to police.

The pair made off with an undisclosed amount of cash, and the van was later ditched on Lickman Road.

A West Kelowna man, 22, has been arrested, and was set to appear in court Tuesday to face robbery charges.

“The RCMP believe there are three men associated with this robbery, two that robbed the bank and one who was the driver of the getaway vehicle,” said RCMP Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth.

During the holdup, the area around the bank was very busy, and there could be other witnesses who saw something relevant, she said.

“We are asking if you were in that area at the time of the robbery and saw something suspicious and have not yet called the police to please do so,” she said.

Chilliwack RCMP Serious Crime Section is investigating.
