Police have released surveillance photos of a suspect in connection with the robbery of the Canada Trust Bank on Victoria Street Friday afternoon (Feb. 17, 2017).

Cpl Jodie Shelkie said that at about 1:35 p.m. the downtown location of the Canada Trust reported that a man had just robbed the bank and had left on foot heading up Third Avenue towards the hospital.  Police responded immediately but were unable to locate the suspect, she said.

The suspect is described as possibly a First Nations male, about 50 years old, has a thin build and was hunched over when he walked.  He was wearing a light brown jacket.

The suspect insinuated that he had a weapon but none was seen during the robbery.  No one was injured during this robbery.

Kamloops RCMP are asking anyone who has any information about the robbery or who can identify the suspect to contact them at 250-828-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
