City cops believe they’ve nabbed a serial robber Wednesday who held up a number of banks in Edmonton this month.
Tactical officers made the arrest sometime around 2:45 a.m. after an investigation led them to an area near 116 Avenue and 94 Street, where the suspect was spotted in a stolen Pontiac G5, police said.
During the high-risk vehicle stop, the suspect tried to break away, causing damage to a nearby parked car before he was taken into custody, police said.
Police accuse the suspect of robbing seven financial institutions since Jan. 9, with the most recent robbery occurring near 129 Street and Manning Crossing on Jan. 21.
In all of the cases, a suspect would enter the bank and pass a note to a teller indicating he had a gun and demanded cash, police said.
Police say investigators are continuing to work on the file.
Charges are pending against 41-year-old Glenn Garry Fraser, city cops said.
Police issued a public alert asking for help in discovering Fraser’s whereabouts last week.
