The man arrested Friday for a string of nine bank robberies across three provinces, including the Jan. 21 hold up at an Aldergrove TD Canada Trust, is from Langley.

Shaun Christopher Cornish, 26, formerly of Langley, has been charged with three robberies committed in Alberta. Charges are pending in the two other provinces.

Cornish was taken into custody at around 2:30 p.m. on Friday (Jan. 30) at a motel in Grand Prairie, Alta.

Grande Prairie is located about 130 kilometres from Dawson Creek, B.C. where another bank was robbed on Wednesday, Jan. 28.

He is accused of carrying out nine armed robberies of banks in B.C., Alberta and Saskatchewan over December and January. Multiple security camera images from different financial institutions that were robbed show the same suspect wearing a toque, sunglasses and black gloves.

Cornish’s next appearance is Feb. 6, at the Okotoks Provincial Court House.

Cornish doesn’t appear to have much of a criminal past in B.C., except he was fined $500 for driving with a suspended license in Mission in February 2008.
