Takedown in Abbotsford

Abbotsford police arrested a man at gunpoint yesterday, alleging he had robbed several businesses on Sunday.

Police told CTV Vancouver that he had just robbed a TD bank when they showed up.

They were forced to shoot him with beanbag rounds, after he refused to cooperate.

A bag of cash was found in some nearby bushes, but police would not say how much money was inside.

No one was injured during the robberies.

The suspect will make a court appearance later today.
