Police investigating early-morning robbery of armoured guards at bank

For Immediate Release: 13-Dec-2018 @ 10:55 AM
MRU #: R18R005  

Robbery Section detectives continue to investigate an early-morning armed robbery at a financial institution in northeast Edmonton, which sent two armoured truck guards to hospital.

Northeast Division patrol members responded to a bank located near 81 Street and 160 Avenue, after GardaWorld Security Services personnel reported a robbery and explosion to police at approximately 2:10 a.m. this morning, Thursday, December 13, 2018.

It was reported to officers that two armoured guards entered the lobby of the bank while conducting their duties, when an explosion occurred injuring both of the guards.

An armed suspect then stole an undisclosed amount of cash from the guards, before fleeing the financial institution eastbound on foot.

Paramedics treated and transported a female and male guard to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The suspect was wearing a disguise, and as such no suspect description is available at this time.
