Saskatoon police have charged a former Winnipeg television news director in a bank robbery that occurred in July.

Stephen Vogelsang, who is 53, is currently in custody in Medicine Hat, Alta., charged with robbing two banks in that city.

Vogelsang is also charged in three bank robberies in Regina.

Police say the Saskatoon robbery occurred on July 31.

They say it's not known when Vogelsang will appear in court in Saskatoon on the single charge.

Vogelsang was a journalism instructor at Red River College in Winnipeg from 2002 until 2011, and before that, he worked as a sports anchor at CKY, which is now CTV Winnipeg, before becoming news director.
