Jake Gyllenhal? Chris Hemsworth?

Johnny cash?

Looks like he took Christmas and New Years off, then headed back this way.


I wonder why they are not also adding the fake beard robber in the list? http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/bank-robber-with-fake-beard-sought-by-rcmp-in-white-rock-b-c-1.2930251

Atta boy! getting back some of his ‘service charges’.

I imagine he will be in PG shortly, hope we nail his butt down.

If it’s the same dude in the listed robberies he certainly gets around and has likely been in or through PG . My guess is he’s from Sask. and hit Swift Current on his way back to the land of plenty after holidaying back at home over xmas-new years .
