The Abbotsford Police Department is also asking for the public’s help in locating Bradwell, who has been identified as the suspect in a July 2 robbery.

Sgt. Judy Bird of the Abbotsford Police Department said the robbery took place on July 2 at around noon, when a man entered the HSBC on South Fraser Way and provided a note demanding money to the bank teller.
