CIBC branch robbed: police
A man claiming to be armed robbed a CIBC branch in suburban Edmonton on Monday morning and made off with a bag of money, police said.
"A lone male had entered the bank, approached an employee and demanded a quantity of cash," Strathcona County RCMP said in a statement. "The male told the employee that he was in possession of a weapon but did not produce one."
Surveillance photos from the bank in Sherwood Park show a teller handing over a stack of bills to the man, who places them in a grey and black Adidas bag.
The heavy-set man was wearing sunglasses and a light-coloured golf shirt and had shoulder-length grey and brown hair. He was described as being six feet three inches tall.
Following the robbery, police said, a search of the area using a dog turned up a bundle of cash believed to have been stolen from the bank, as well as a weapon, which the Mounties would not describe.
The branch is at Sherwood Drive and Wye Road.
