WEST KELOWNA - RCMP are releasing photos from a West Kelowna bank robbery in a bid to identify the suspect.

Kelowna RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey said in a press release that surveillance video of the Dec. 9 of the Bank of Montreal in the 3600 block of Gosset Road  got these images of the suspect.

A man described as a white male in his mid-20s entered the bank around 3:30 p.m. and passed a note to the teller. He ran from the bank after receiving an undisclosed amount of cash, the release says.

The suspect was wearing a black jacket and pants plus a red and black baseball cap, last seen carrying a black laptop bag or brief case.
