VPD respond to bank robbery reports

Vancouver Police are downplaying concerns raised about several bank robberies recorded in the city over the past two weeks.
 
Sgt. Randy Fincham says that’s normal for any given calendar year, but, “if we have a spike in activity in a certain area or certain city, our investigators will continue to look at any connection to one individual or possibly more than one individual that’s responsible. At this point, we’re looking at some of the robberies that we think we possibly can link.”

A 45-year old chronic offender suspected of hitting two banks in the past week is back behind bars.

A canada-wide warrant was issued for Douglas Werner over the weekend when he failed to return to his Vancouver halfway house.
