SURREY — Police have arrested a suspect in a recent bank robbery in Guildford in which the bad guy dressed up as a woman.
The robbery happened on Dec. 29, in the 15100-block of 101 Avenue. The robber ran away and no staff were injured.
Police are recommending robbery charges be laid against a 39-year-old Surrey man. His name has not yet been released.
After the robbery, the Surrey RCMP released surveillance camera footage from the bank showing an Asian man wearing a patterned dress, white woolen sweater, blonde long curly wig and a pink toque, hoping someone might be able to identify him.
“Thank you to the public, media, and our policing and community partners for their assistance,” Cpl. Scotty Schumann said.
