The serial robber who has hit eight banks in eight weeks, has struck again, this time in Dawson Creek.

On Wednesday, (Jan. 28), at 4 p.m. the Dawson Creek RCMP received a hold up alarm at one of the local banks. A lone male entered, produced a firearm and demanded money. No one was injured during the robbery and the suspect left with an undisclosed amount of cash. This time he may be in a silver GMC Envoy.

Dawson Creek RCMP have already released a surveillance picture of him.

His last bank robbery was in Aldergrove on Jan. 21. Each time, the surveillance images show the same suspect wearing the same look, with toque and sunglasses, wearing black gloves.

Almost a modern-day Jesse James, although nobody gets hurt in these robberies, the suspect has been holding up banks across three provinces starting Dec. 9, in High River, Alta., heading west into B.C., hitting banks in Vernon, Princeton, Merritt, then to Saskatchewan on Jan. 13, to Alberta again and then to Aldergrove. Each time he makes off with an unknown sum of money.
