A $2,000 reward is being offered by police to identify suspects involved in a Chilliwack bank robbery last week.

One of the three suspects, Ryan Terry Therrien of West Kelowna, appeared in court on July 11, in connection with charges of robbery, and disguising his face with intent to commit a crime.

The holdup on July 8 at the Vedder Road Bank of Montreal saw two men wearing bandanas and then fleeing in a white van driven by a third suspect, according to police files.

Therrien is still in custody and awaiting a July 19 show cause hearing.
