Suspect arrested after Scotia Bank robbed in Richmond

A Salmon Arm resident is in police custody and is facing robbery-related charges after the Scotia Bank on Bridgeport Road was held up on Monday afternoon.

Around 2 p.m. on June 20, police responded to a report of a robbery at the bank on the 11000 block of Bridgeport Road.

A man had reportedly walked into the bank armed with a knife, and demanded money.

He then fled the scene in a vehicle with an undisclosed sum of cash.

The suspect was found by officers from the Vancouver police, and turned over to Richmond Mounties.

Karl Danny Nelson has been charged with robbery, wearing a face mask to disguise his identity and possession of a weapon dangerous to public peace.

He is next scheduled to appear in Richmond provincial court on June 27.
