Calgary Police will be conducting a re-enactment of a robbery at a southwest Royal Bank on Wednesday morning, hoping for a lead in the case.
The re-enactment will taking place at the RBC Royal Bank at Signal Hill Centre at 8 a.m.
Officers with the Robbery Unit are heading up the investigation, actively seeking a serial bank robber who robbed several banks at gunpoint in southern Alberta.
Earlier this year, two banks in Calgary and one in Crossfield were robbed by an armed man.
The suspect's spree began in mid-January when he entered the Scotiabank on Uxbridge Dr. N.W. and produced a robbery note. He fled with an undisclosed amount of money.
Then, in Crossfield, a man entered the ATB Financial and demanded money.
On February 6, police say the same man entered the Royal Bank at Signal Hill Centre and demanded money.
When the staff refused to comply, he fired a shot into the wall and fled the scene.
Police say they are concerned with the level of violence exhibited during the incidents.
The suspect is described as:
- mid 30s
- between 140 and 160 lbs
- slim build
- medium length brown hair
- light beard
Police say in some cases he was seen wearing sunglasses and black leather gloves.
Anyone with information about the crime is asked to call police or CrimeStoppers.
