Victoria cops nab fourth bank robber

The four suspects in all six bank robberies in Victoria this year have been arrested

The four suspects in all six bank robberies in Victoria this year have been arrested.

Victoria police nabbed the latest suspect Wednesday.

On June 30, a man walked into the Bank of Montreal at 1225 Douglas St., told a teller he had a weapon and demanded cash. He received some money and ran away.

Officers used a description of the suspect and arrested Troy Thomas Gold, 28, at Douglas and Johnson streets on Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. He is charged with robbery.

The same bank was robbed by a 52-year-old man in February; also that month, one man was accused of robbing three banks in four days; and the Douglas Street Scotiabank was robbed by a man on May 20.
