Police say their only suspect in Friday's bank robbery in downtown Halifax is dead.

On Friday, a man walked into the CIBC branch on Barrington Street, demanded money and fled with some cash.

Police received tips about the case after a photo of the suspect was released to the media. It wasn't long before they knew the man's identity.

On Sunday, RCMP in New Brunswick told Halifax police that their suspect had died in Moncton.

Police said the man's death is not suspicious, though they didn't give details.

There are no other suspects in the bank robbery, so the investigation is now closed.
