Leads have been followed but no arrests have been made in an armed robbery at a Vernon financial institution last month.

Vernon RCMP serious crimes unit continues to investigate the robbery that took place on Tuesday, Dec. 9, at Interior Savings Credit Union in the 4300 block of 32nd Street.

“Police have followed up on several leads that were provided by the public about the 25-to-35 year-old male suspect,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “However, they have not led to an arrest.”

The investigation is nearly a month old, so investigators are releasing the suspect’s photos again in hopes that it might jog a memory of a witness.

They are hoping someone may have seen this person in and around the credit union that afternoon, or perhaps someone might know who this person is and will call officers with the information.

The suspect wore black sunglasses, about a three-day growth of beard and is about five-foot-10 to six-foot tall with a slim build.

The clothing description is he had a grey top, orange-grey-white plaid shirt under it, grey sweat pants, brown shoes, dark toque and black leather gloves.

The suspect produced a gun and made off with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Vernon RCMP are asking anyone with any information about this robbery to please call them at 250-545-7171 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
