The man who robbed the TD Canada Trust bank on Jan. 21 in Aldergrove is believed to have robbed eight banks in B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan.



The man who robbed the Aldergrove TD Canada Trust bank on Jan. 21 may be a modern-day Jesse James.

RCMP from B.C., Alberta and Saskatchewan, as well as the Lethbridge Regional Police Service, believe the same man committed eight armed robberies across the three provinces in the past two months.

In each robbery, surveillance pictures show the same man.

The robberies occurred Dec. 1, 2014 in Princeton, Dec. 9 in Vernon, Dec. 19 in High River, Alta., Dec. 23 in Merritt, Jan. 8 in Swift Current, Sask., Jan. 13 in Lethbridge, Jan. 16 in Claresholm, Alta., Jan. 21, in Aldergrove.

In each case, the suspect wore a black toque, black gloves, sunglasses and managed to flee on foot with sums of money.

All robberies involved a weapon; either being produced or mentioned, said the various police agencies.

In all instances, the suspect left the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash and fled on foot. No employees or customers present in the financial institutions were physically injured.

Police from all three provinces are working to identify the person responsible and bring him safely into custody. The public should not approach the suspect as he is considered armed and dangerous, said RCMP.

Anyone with information regarding any of these robberies, or if you have information on the identity of the suspect, call the tip line at 1-844-887-6287.

Or you can call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
