Nanaimo RCMP are asking the public to help identify a man alleged to have illegally obtained $70,000 from various bank branches in Quebec and B.C.
According to a press release, two of the incidents involve Nanaimo RBC branches at Brooks Landing and Commercial Street, where close to $11,500 was “obtained.” Police say both incidents took place Dec. 11.
“Beginning in March of 2018, the suspect male was able to obtain identification from existing RBC clients and attended to five different RBC locations throughout Quebec,” said the press release. “The same person is then alleged to have committed eight fraudulent transactions between Nov. 6 and 7 at RBC locations in Surrey and Langley. The last reported incident involving the suspect male took place on Dec. 12 in Parksville where $8,000 was illegally obtained.”
The man is described as Caucasian, heavy set with dark hair, between the age of 45-55 years old and was wearing glasses.
