The suspect in an attempted bank robbery in Steinbach earlier this month, tried the same stunt four days later. At least that is what Manitoba RCMP believe after seeing surveillance footage.
As we reported earlier this month, on November 10th at approximately 4:55 pm, Steinbach RCMP responded to an attempted robbery at the TD Canada Trust on Main Street in Steinbach. A male entered the bank and handed the teller a note demanding money. No weapons were seen, and the male left the bank shortly after. Police say he did not obtain any money.
The male suspect is described as tall with a slim build and blue eyes. He was wearing a black face covering, high visibility vest, blue jeans, black jacket and black toque. It was originally believed that he fled in a black vehicle, but further investigation has determined it was a light coloured four door sedan believed to be between the years 2004 and 2008.
Then, four days later, on November 14th at approximately 3:05 pm, Emerson RCMP responded to a robbery at the Access Credit Union on Main Street in Lowe Farm.
Police say a male entered the credit union, handed the teller a note demanding money and left the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash. No weapons were seen. He fled westbound in a light coloured four-door sedan believed to be between the years 2004 and 2008.
The male suspect is described as six feet tall, in his mid-20s to mid-30s, with blue eyes, dark eyebrows, a large nose and slim build. He was wearing a black face covering, high visibility vest, blue jeans, black jacket and black gloves.
RCMP believe the same suspect was responsible for both crimes and used the same vehicle.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Steinbach RCMP, Emerson RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
