The former CTV news director and sportscaster, who also was a journalism instructor at Red River College, was arrested by police in Medicine Hat on Oct. 21 after robberies on Oct. 19 and 20.
Saskatoon police are now looking into whether he might have robbed a bank there on July 31. A bank on Eighth Street E. in Saskatoon was robbed around 11:30 a.m.
No one was injured.
Shortly after the robbery, police described the man as about 50, short, with a large belly and a brown beard.
He was wearing a black, silk-rimmed Fedora, sunglasses and a black long-sleeve shirt with a mesh jacket, and carrying a blue bag.
One of his hands was bandaged.
Police believe he was in a black Chrysler 300 with tinted rear windows and shiny rims.
In August, they released images from surveillance camera footage on the day of the robbery in an attempt to identify the robber.
He also recently divorced his wife, and his Winnipeg home went into foreclosure in April.
