Vernon bank robbery suspect remains at large
Hints from the public are coming in, but Vernon RCMP continue to search for a bank robbery suspect.
Police, last week, released photos of robbery suspects from three different financial institutions in Vernon hit over the past seven months, and indicated that one person is responsible for the three robberies.

The one suspect is believed to be responsible for robberies at the VantageOne Credit Union Dec. 20, Bank of Montreal on June 9 and at HSBC July 24.
The suspect is described as a Caucasian man in his late teens or early 20s, about six-feet tall, clean-shaven and weighing approximately 150 or 160 pounds.
Anybody who can help police identify the suspect is asked to call the Vernon detachment at 250-545-7171, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, or leave a tip on the local Crime Stoppers’ website, www.nokscrimestoppers.com.
