Richmond Mounties Issue Warning Over Bike-Riding Thief

Darpan News Desk, 16 Jul, 2019

    Richmond RCMP are warning the community of two types of robberies that are currently under investigation.


    The Richmond RCMP is investigating 3 robberies that occurred on between July 3rd and July 9th 2019.


    These robberies occurred during the afternoon or evening hours and were all in the downtown corridor of Richmond.

    The victims were walking when they had either a cell phone, purse, or satchel snatched from their hands by a male suspect riding a bike.

    The Richmond RCMP is also investigating 2 robberies and 1 attempted robbery where a suspect targeted victims who recently withdrew funds from ATM machines. These crimes occurred in afternoon/early evening hours between June 30 and July 5, 2019 and occurred near the TD Canada Trust at 8500 No. 3 Road, near the RBC at 10111 No. 3 Rd, and near the CIBC Bank at 8751 No. 1 Road.

    The suspect in these robberies is described as a:


    Caucasian male

    Late 20s, early 30s

    Heavy set

    6’ tall

    Dark short hair


    We have several teams of officers from our General Investigation Section working these cases. We would like to remind the community to be especially vigilant and pay close attention to your surroundings says Corporal Dennis Hwang.

    If walking alone, do periodic checks around you and keep your attention focused. If you are carrying a purse or satchel, placing it central to your body makes it harder to dislodge from your shoulder.


    When departing any financial institution, currency exchange, or ATM, be cautious and secure any withdrawals out of sight prior departing. In one of the incidents, the attempted robbery was thwarted by screaming and making a lot of commotion which was overheard by bystanders adds Cpl. Hwang.


    Richmond RCMP is asking for anyone with potential information on these crimes to contact the Richmond RCMP General Investigation Section at 604-278-1212 by email at Richmond_Tips@rcmp-grc.gc.ca
