Police have recovered the alleged weapon used by the suspect in Tuesday's Orchard Plaza Royal Bank robbery, along with the stolen cash.
RCMP Cst. Kris Clark confirms the weapon was in imitation firearm.
Clark says the weapon was so realistic you couldn't tell is was an imitation until you got close.
Just after 4 p.m. on August 21, RCMP responded to a report of an armed robbery at the Royal Bank on 1840 Cooper Road.
According to witnesses, the suspect pulled out what appeared to be a hand gun and demanded money. The man fled the scene on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash.
Clark says thanks to the help of a couple of witnesses, police were able to track down the suspect to The Bay and make an arrest.
Brian Christie Miranada appeared in Court yesterday and was remanded. He is scheduled to appear in Court again later today.
