Police had said the suspect usually took the same steps in each robbery, wearing a disguise and giving the teller a written note containing a threat and demanding money.

“A suspect in five serious crimes was apprehended as a result of this lengthy investigation,” said EPS Det. Justin Collis. “The Edmonton Police Service is grateful for the assistance provided by Strathcona County RCMP with identifying this suspect.”

Jagveer Kundi, 20, of Edmonton was arrested on Sunday shortly after 9 p.m. Police said he is charged with five counts of robbery and four counts of disguise with intent.
