Credit union robbed in downtown Chilliwack

The Prospera credit union in downtown Chilliwack was robbed Monday morning by a lone male who passed a note to the teller demanding money.

The Prospera credit union in downtown Chilliwack was robbed Monday morning by a lone male who passed a note to the teller demanding money.

“It was a pretty bold move to make in the middle of the day, and we are hoping because of the number of people that were in the area (that) someone saw something that can help us,” Const. Tracy Wolbek said.

The suspect fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of money, and police dogs couldn’t pick up a track due to the heavy volume of foot traffic in the area.

Wellington Avenue was temporarily closed down after the 11 a.m. robbery as police officers set up a perimeter to locate and contain the suspect, but they were unsuccessful.

The Prospera credit union is located at 45820 Wellington Ave.

The suspect is described as a white male, about six feet tall with sandy brown hair. He was wearing a dark brown Varsity-style jacket with black sleeves and dark tear-away pants.

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