RCMP seeks be­wigged ban­dit

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - CANADA -

SUR­REY, B.C. — It might have been a dis­guise, or it might have been one man’s def­i­ni­tion of high fash­ion, but ei­ther way, Moun­ties in Sur­rey, B.C., want to talk to him about it — and the fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tion he’s ac­cused of rob­bing. RCMP say it hap­pened Dec. 29 at about 6 p.m., when a man walked into the branch near the Guild­ford Town Cen­tre wear­ing what they be­lieve was a dis­guise. Ac­cord­ing to po­lice the man, de­scribed as an Asian, was wear­ing a pat­terned dress, white woolen sweater, a long blond, curly wig and a pink toque pulled down to his eye­brows. The sus­pect es­caped on foot and po­lice have not said how much cash, if any, was taken. In­ves­ti­ga­tors say they haven’t been able to iden­tify the man. They would like to speak to any­one who has in­for­ma­tion that could help them track the crook.
