Waterloo Regional police are searching for two suspects after a bank robbery in Kitchener Wednesday afternoon.
Around 12:45 on January 16, 2013 two males entered the Scotia Bank on Krug Street in Kitchener. Once inside the bank one male jumped the counter and demanded cash from the teller. He filled a bag with an undisclosed amount of currency while the other kept watch. No weapons were displayed and no one was injured.
The two males fled from the bank and witnesses reported seeing dye packs in the money activate.
The first suspect is described as a light skinned male. He was wearing a grey ski style jacket or shell with a hood, horizontal venting on the back and a light coloured marking over the left breast. He was wearing dark gloves, dark pants and white runners.
The second suspect is described as a light skinned male. He was wearing jeans, a dark coloured jacket with a zipper up the front and a hood and with draw strings hanging from both sides at the bottom.
Because of the possibility that the dye packs activated, the suspects may have crimson dye on their clothing or skin.
Anyone with information is asked to call Waterloo Regional Police at 519-653-7700 x4499 or Crime Stoppers 1 800 222 8477.
