Bank robbery suspects charged and ID'd

Two men have been arrested and charged in connection with two separate robberies at the Bank of Montreal earlier this summer.

Sean Cavanagh, 27, and Joshua Friesen, 19, have both been charged with robbery in relation to the Kelowna robberies.

On Aug. 8 at 9:55 a.m., Kelowna RCMP responded to a report of a robbery at the BMO on Harvey Avenue. A man had entered the bank and told the teller that he had a weapon and passed a note asking for a large sum of money. The man then fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash, heading towards the Capri Centre Mall.

That man turned out to be Cavanagh, who was arrested a short time later on Burtch Road near Springfield.

Further investigation revealed the identity of a second suspect who police also linked to a previous robbery that occurred on July 19 at the BMO on Lakeshore Road,

Friesen and Cavanagh both remain in custody and are scheduled to appear in Court later this month.
