Robbery suspect faces numerous charges

Victoria man, 30, responsible for at least eight robberies, police say

Victoria police have nailed the bad guy they think committed eight armed robberies around the region since September.

Police arrested the 30-year-old Victoria man on Sunday and are recommending he be charged for all eight robberies, some of which were caught on video and showed a six-foot-tall white male between the ages of 20 and 30 in the act.

The arrest is the culmination of a joint investigation by VicPD, Saanich Police and West Shore RCMP.

Using a search warrant late Monday, police raided a home in the 3000-block of Washington Ave., where they seized various items that will help in their investigation and charges being laid.

The suspect has been remanded in custody until Monday (Oct. 24).

The last robbery their suspect is believed to have committed took place Oct. 2 when a robber wearing a grey hoodie with red lettering and a black and white bandana pulled over his face used what appeared to be a handgun to rob Panago Pizza at 1108 Yates St.
