Police looking for ATM robber

Suspect allegedly robbed five ATM customers in Surrey and Delta within a week in July.

Police are looking for this man in connection with a string of ATM robberies.

Police in Surrey and Delta are on the hunt for a man believed to be responsible for a number of ATM robberies.

Following two robberies on July 8 in Delta and July 9 in Surrey, the man is alleged to have committed three additional robberies, all on July 10, one in Delta and two more in Surrey, all along the Scott Road corridor near 72 Avenue.

The suspect is described as a Caucasian male, 30 to 40 years old, approximately 5’10” and 160 pounds, clean cut, with short blond hair.

“While no additional robberies associated to this suspect have occurred since this last series, the frequency of these incidents is obviously a concern and suggests that this is a very desperate individual,” said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet. “Although there has been no injuries reported in any of these robberies, we want to ensure the safety of the public by doing everything possible to locate and arrest this individual.”

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP’s Robbery Section at 604-599-0502, Delta Police Department at 604-946-4411, or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-TIPS.

Police remind the public about the importance of being aware of your surroundings when withdrawing funds from an ATM. Protect your pin number, refrain from withdrawing large amounts of cash, and always secure your money at the ATM before walking away with money in hand. In the event of a robbery, try to remain calm and cooperative. Never assume that the perpetrator isn’t armed and try to pay close attention to what they look like before calling the police as soon as it is safe to do so.
