Robber hits Willowbrook bank

Langley RCMP are looking for help to identify a man who held up a bank in the Willowbrook area on Friday.

The man walked into the bank, gave the teller a note demanding money, and left with an undisclosed amount of cash, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

The man did not produce a weapon during the hold up, said Marks.

The man is Caucasian, about 35 years old, and wore a brown toque, a lumberjack-style jacket, and blue jeans.

Police are not sure if he is linked to a previous robbery attempt earlier in February, though the men in the two surveillance photos appear strikingly similar.

In the first incident, on Feb. 17, a man walked into a bank in the 20800 block of Fraser Highway and passed the clerk a note saying he was robbing the bank.

The man indicated he had a weapon but did not produce one.

However, when the teller went to get the cash, the would-be robber ran away, empty handed.

The man in that robbery is described as Caucasian, about 5’10”, 185-200 pounds, and was wearing a beige or yellow ballcap with the word CANADA in red, large sunglasses, blue jeans, and a two-tone beige snowboarding jacket.

Anyone with information on either robbery should call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200, or to leave an anonymous tip, contact CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or at www.solvecrime.ca or www.facebook.com/metrovancouvercrimestoppers, or by texting BCTIP and your message to CRIMES (274637).
