Police in Vernon believe one person may be responsible for a string of unsolved bank robberies in the city over the past seven months.
The latest robbery took place at the downtown HSBC branch Tuesday afternoon.
Other robberies took place at Vantage One Credit Union December 20, 2011 and the Bank of Montreal June 9 of this year.
RCMP spokesman, Gord Molendyk, says while photos from each robbery show the individual with different looks, "there are several indications that one person is responsible for the three robberies."
The suspect is described as a Caucasian male in his late teens or early 20's. He's clean shaven, about 6', and weighs between 150 and 160 pounds.
Police are asking anyone who believes they may know the identity of the suspect to contact either the Vernon RCMP Detachment at 250-545-7171 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
