A 46-year-old Vancouver man has been arrested and charged in connection with a New Westminster bank robbery.

The TD Bank in the Columbia Square Plaza was robbed by a lone man on Aug. 3 at 9:15 a.m.

New Westminster police attended and searched the area with a dog team but they failed to locate the suspect who had fled on foot.

Video surveillance, witness interviews, and forensic analysis led police to 46-year-old Vancouver resident Gordon Tremblay, who was already in custody in connection with a string of robberies committed in Vancouver earlier this month.

New West police requested a warrant, and Tremblay was charged with the Aug. 3 bank robbery.

Tremblay possesses a lengthy criminal record that includes multiple convictions for robbery, assault with a weapon, uttering threats and other crimes.

He remains in-custody until his next appearance in Vancouver Provincial Court on Aug. 30.
