Aldergrove Subway robber nabbed by Mounties

Charges have been laid against one male involved in a violent ‘takeover’ style robbery at the Subway in Aldergrove on November 18.

Charges have been laid against one male involved in a violent ‘takeover’ style robbery at the Subway in Aldergrove on November 18.

Police were called shortly before 10 p.m. that evening by a store employee who was completing closing duties when two masked men entered and jumped over the counter.

One male ran to the rear of the store while the other opened the cash register and began loading money into a bag. As he loaded the cash, he pointed a firearm at the clerk. He then pointed the firearm at her head, forced her to the ground and ordered her to open the safe. She was able to convince him she didn’t have access to the safe and they left with only the cash from the till.

The male holding the firearm was not wearing gloves and was seen touching the counter when police reviewed the surveillance footage. Lower Mainland Forensic Identification Services attended and fingerprint impressions were developed from the counter.  After a comparison process, it was determined the impressions belonged to David Sini Holani.

Holani is a 20 year old Langley resident and is charged with robbery and use of an imitation firearm. He has been remanded in custody and will next appear in court on December 10.

The second subject remains unknown and is described as Caucasian, 22-25 years old, wearing a beige hoodie, a white jacket, black pants, shoes and gloves. He talked on his cell phone for the entire duration of the robbery.
