Three attempted bank robbers were foiled Tuesday after trying to rob a bank that wasn’t open yet.
Around 9:15 a.m., three masked men got out of a stolen Ford Explorer outside the CIBC on Greenhill Avenue in the city’s east end, police say. Two of them tried to open the door to the bank, but couldn’t get in because it wasn’t scheduled to open for 15 minutes.
The suspects jumped back into the vehicle and sped off. Officers in the area found the Explorer abandoned at the end of Mount Albion Road. Search dogs were brought in to search the wooded area, but no one was found, police say.
Police are still searching for the men.
