Waterloo Regional police have released images of a suspect in the Thursday afternoon robbery of a Kitchener bank.
A Scotiabank branch at a plaza on Doon Village Road was robbed Thursday afternoon less than two months after the bank had already been targeted.
Police were called to the scene around 2:15 p.m. after reports a man went into the bank and demanded cash. He then fled in a vehicle with an undisclosed amount of cash.
Police believe the suspect was driving a blue Pontiac Montana van or similar vehicle. Furthermore, the vehicle is believed to have family-style stick figure stickers in the back window.
Police have confirmed that a dye pack contained within the money activated while in the suspect's possession. The suspect and his clothing will likely be covered in red dye.
Investigators were also spotted outside the nearby Edelweiss Tavern, where one officer was spotted pulling cash out of shrubs bushes and putting it into a plastic bag.
This is the second time this bank was robbed in the past few months.
On May 14th, at the same bank, a man entered, handed a note to the teller and ran out a short time later with an undisclosed amount of cash.
