Wednesday, June 04, 2014   by: Staff



Crime Stoppers and the East Algoma Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police are looking for anyone who may have information that will help solve the case of an armed robbery. 

On June 2, 2006 at 12:20 p.m. a suspect armed with a black handgun entered and robbed the Scotia Bank in Spanish, Ontario of an undisclosed amount of cash.
The suspect made his get-away on a blue sport style all-terrain vehicle, possibly a Yamaha Raptor or Warrior.
The suspect is described as male between 19 - 20 years of age at that time, 6’ – 6’3” tall, slim build, with a tan skin complexion. 
At that time he was wearing a grey/silver Fuel Motocross helmet, black and red Motocross gloves, a two toned hoodie with darker sleeves, black pants, brown boots, dark sunglasses, and a balaclava, carrying a black duffle bag.
Crime Stoppers will offer a double reward for any information leading to the arrest of this person.
Call us at 705-942-7867 or 1-800-222-8477, type a tip through our website or text the keyword SSM along with your tip to 274637.

Statute of limitations on armed robbery. Thanks for the giggle today. :)

Theres no statue of limitations to any indictable offence in Canada. This guy can still be changed to the full extent of the law. People who didn't realize this should take a look at the Criminal Code of Canada before making idiotic statements of freedom after 7 years. Thats completely ridiculous.
