Man sought by police for TD bank robbery.

Chilliwack RCMP are asking for public help identifying a suspect in the robbery of the TD Canada Trust Bank on Vedder Road last week.

“The crime took place on a bright, sunny morning in a busy area of town,” RCMP Const. Tracy Wolbeck said. “We are hoping that someone saw something that could be of value to us.”

The lone male, wearing a grey plaid ball cap, a white T-shirt with a grey symbol on it, and dark pants, entered the bank at about 8:40 a.m. on Sept. 3.

He produced a note demanding money, but no weapon was used.

There was a champagne-coloured Ford F150 truck parked in the bank parking lot at the time that may be associated to the suspect.

“Although no licence plate number was obtained, there was damage to both the front end of the truck as well as the bumper area,” Wolbeck said.

The suspect was described as a white male, about six feet tall, weighing about 180 lbs. He had dark brown hair, and dark stubble on his face. He appeared to be acting alone.

Anyone with information about the suspect or the truck is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
