In an attempt to catch a bank robber who has evaded police for the last four years, the Canadian Bankers Association (CBA) has increased its reward for a second time since September 2011.
Dubbed the Vaulter Bandit because of his athletic ability to scale bank counters, his last robbery was committed at a TD bank in the Don Mills Rd. & Lawrence Ave. E. area on May 5. The suspect showed up at the bank at around 7 a.m. and confronted employees as they were unlocking the doors.
He produced a handgun and ordered the employees into the bank, where he managed to escape with a quantity of cash. This is believed to be the suspect’s first bank robbery in Toronto since he started stealing from banks in early February 2010. He has also robbed nine banks in York region, four in Calgary and one in Ottawa.
