VERNON - Mounties continue to investigate a bank robbery that happened at the Interior Savings Credit Union December 9 but so far haven't been able to make an arrest.

According to an RCMP media release, there have been several leads from the public about the 25- to 35-year-old suspect and they're again asking the public to take a look at photos in hopes it will jog someone's memory. The bank is located at 4301-32 Street in Vernon.
