Third Suspect Caught

All accounted for.

The third suspect in the robbery of a Penticton bank has been arrested.

Gordon Claire Robinson, 23, was arrested in Chilliwack on December 16 in connection with the December 6 robbery of the Royal Bank branch on Nanaimo Avenue.

Corporal Rick Dellebuur says all three men involved have now been arrested and none of them are believed to be Penticton residents.

“Preston Hammond, 18, was the first man arrested and he is from the Lower Mainland. The second, 32-year-old Michael Peter Beauchamp is from Grand Forks and Robinson is from Chilliwack,” says Dellebuur.

He says Robinson will be brought back to Penticton in the near future to face charges related to the robbery.
