Police have collared a Langley man they think was involved in a bank robbery Wednesday in Maple Ridge.

Ridge Meadows RCMP said at about 3:30 p.m., a man walked into the Bank of Montreal on 206th Street and Lougheed Highway, indicated he had a gun and demanding money, then took off.

When police arrived, they saw someone who matched the general description of the suspect and arrested him.

“The bank employees did everything right,” said Const. Amanda Harnett. “They kept themselves safe and provided police key identifying features of the male, which led to his arrest a short distance away as he fled the scene.”

Thomas Dennis Prosser, 36, appeared in Port Coquitlam provincial court Thursday, charged with robbery. He next appears March 12.

Police say Prosser may be involved in up to six recent bank robberies in the Lower Mainland, but haven’t laid any other charges.
