During a press conference today (Friday) Halton Police are expected to release new photos and videos from several recent robberies at banks throughout southern Ontario involving a man dubbed the "Under Armour bandit", believed to be responsible for a robbery in Acton last month. Halton Regional Police Service is working along with several other police services to identify and arrest the man named for the "Under Armour" clothing logo seen on the cap he was wearing during several of the robberies between Aug. 29, 2006 through Jan. 6, 2007. Police have linked the man to 17 robberies in total, including two in Milton, and one in each of Acton, Oakville and Burlington. The man responsible for the Acton robbery was not wearing an "Under Armour" cap during the Dec. 27 robbery at the Mill St. E. Scotiabank branch, however, police believe he is the same man due to similarities in the method used to rob the bank and the suspect's description. Police say a lone man entered the bank at 12:35 p.m. and approached a female teller. He said he had a gun, however none was seen, and demanded cash. The woman turned over some cash and the man fled out the door and was last seen heading towards Church St. on foot. The suspect is described as male, white, with a medium build, approximately 6 ft. tall. He was wearing a Toronto Maple Leafs baseball cap, dark jacket, and dark pants. Police are interested in a vehicle that was seen in the area of several of the robberies including the one in Acton. It is a 2003 or newer brown or tan, two-door, GMC Jimmy with tinted windows. Anyone with information about the Acton robbery or the "Under Armour bandit" is asked to call Det. Const. Greg Casson at 905-878-5511 ext. 2455 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
