Suspect in 4 south Edmonton bank robberies sought by police

Four banks have been robbed in south Edmonton since October 2023 and now police believe the same suspect is behind all of the crimes.

In November, Edmonton police issued a news release about a robbery at a TD Bank on Ellerslie Road on Oct. 30.

Police said similar robberies were reported Dec. 22, 2023 and Jan. 4 and 6, all in south Edmonton.

The suspect reportedly takes the same steps in each robbery: He wears a disguise — typically a blue medical face mask — and approaches a teller and gives them a written note.

Police said the note contains a threat that he has a weapon and demands money. The suspect then flees the area, and investigators believe he may have taken off in a vehicle. No weapon is produced during the robberies, police added.
