Three people face charges, with more pending, after a bank was robbed on Alta Vista Drive Tuesday.
Just after 11 a.m., two males, one armed with a firearm, entered a bank in the 2700 block of Alta Vista Drive and demanded money. The men fled in a vehicle with an undisclosed amount of cash.
At approximately 11:27 a.m., a plainclothes Ottawa police officer observed a suspect vehicle in the area of Brewer Park and arrested three people, who police believe may have been involved in other bank robberies. Additional charges are pending.
Normand Oscar Sigouin, 47, of Gatineau, faces three counts each of robbery and pointing a firearm and one count each of wearing a disguise, conspiracy to commit an indictable offence and use of a firearm in a commission of an offence.
Christine Karen Osside, 45, of Ottawa, is charged with three counts of robbery and one count of conspiracy to commit an indictable offence and Andre Omer Mayer, 51, of no fixed address, is charged with three counts of robbery and pointing a firearm, two counts of failure to comply with a probation order and one count of wearing a disguise and conspiracy to commit an indictable offence.
All three appeared in court yesterday.
