Revelstoke RCMP reported the incident on Friday April 6, 2018, after a lone male walked into a financial institution on First Street West. The male demanded cash from the teller, was provided with an undisclosed amount of money and departed from the bank without further incident.

RCMP say the media release and CCTV photo released following the robbery were instrumental in identifying the suspect and leading to an arrest.

The accused’s next scheduled court appearance is set for Tuesday May 22, 2018 in the Salmon Arm Provincial Court.
