The recent rash of roberies in Westbank is becomig quite concerning , to say the least !

Odd to that this incedent is not being reported yet in the media

Robbery?

NO!
Please stop bragging on facebook about how great the Okanagan is right now, or they'll want to move here.

I can't believe people still rob banks thinking they'll actually get something out of there. Morons.

For sure, eh? Everyone knows they loaded the strongbox of gold on this morning's stage and it headed out west at sun up.

Stolen truck used in bank robbery
by Wayne Moore - Story: 83849
Nov 28, 2012 / 12:48 pm

RCMP in West Kelowna are looking for a man they believe is responsible for a bank robbery Tuesday afternoon.

Police say they received a report of a robbery at the Scotiabank on Dobbin Road in Westbank shortly before 1 p.m.


Photo: Contributed - Google Street View
The man was wearing a mask and demanded money, although did not produce a weapon.

He got away with an undisclosed amount of cash and fled the scene in a blue Mazda pick-up.

The truck was bearing plates from a vehicle reported stolen from a residence in the 3300 block of Grouse Road just minutes before the robbery.

"Apparently, the owners' son took their blue Mazda pick-up without consent earlier that day," says Cst. Kris Clark.

"The suspect then returned to the residence with the stolen truck and fled in a different vehicle. Both vehicles have since been recovered and police believe the suspect may be headed towards Manitoba.

The suspect is a 26-year-old Aboriginal male, 5'11" and 176 pounds.

He has brown eyes, an orange mohawk and possibly a goatee.

Clark says the suspect is known to police and is known to be violent.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the suspect is asked to contact West Kelowna RCMP at 250-768-2880 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Could someone please tell me why the Police will not release the name of the suspect. You would think it would be a big help.

Shouldn't be a hard guy to figure out ... who do you know with an orange mohawk and possibly a goatee?

Could be underage so they won't release his name. His mohawk can be shaved so that's not really a big help.

Can't release his name until he's been charged.

At any rate. He's been caught.

Good news.

It just doesn't seem to make sense that the cops would be looking for someone and not be able to release the suspects name.

*robbery

Are there still people who don't have spellcheck enabled in their web browsers? C'mon, now. It's 2012, not 2002!
