UPDATE: Suspect on the run after Kelowna bank robbed with handgun

(UPDATE: July 31 @ 12:05 pm): The Kelowna RCMP is searching for a man suspected of robbing a bank with a handgun.

Police were called to the RBC on Pandosy Street just after 10 am this morning.

All available resources "flooded" the area, police said, including dogs and a helicopter.

But the suspect, who fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of cash, is still on the run.

"Officers are conducting a coordinated search for the individual and are asking the public to report any suspicious activity immediately," said Cpl. Jocelyn Noseworthy.

The suspect is described as wearing a dark baseball cap, sunglasses, a grey hoodie and a mask.

Anyone with information about this crime can contact the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.

To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or leave a tip online at crimestoppers.net.
