Police said they have learned that the suspect allegedly entered the bank, approached a teller and demanded money before leaving on foot with an unknown amount of cash.

"Our front line officers spotted the suspect in a vehicle in the area of Springfield Road and Hollywood Road South," RCMP Cpl. Jesse O'Donaghey said.

"Those officers conducted a high-risk traffic stop with the black Dodge Neon and managed to take that suspect into police custody without incident."

The 58-year-old man remains in custody.
