These Bank Robbery Suspects Were Caught After Going To A Timmies

It was almost the perfect crime.

Posted on

Police in New Brunswick arrested two people who allegedly robbed a bank, then stopped at a Tim Hortons drive-thru.

According to the local RCMP, a man entered a Royal Bank branch in Richibucto on Monday and demanded money from a teller before fleeing the scene in a car. However, that same car was spotted a short time later in a neighbouring town at a Tim Hortons.

Police say they arrested a 24-year-old man and a 26-year-old woman at the scene.

The pair's arrest at gunpoint was caught on camera by Facebook user Jason Arseneault. The getaway vehicle appears to have been a PT Cruiser.

According to CBC News, the alleged bank robbers didn't buy anything after pulling into the drive-thru. They were arrested in the parking lot of the coffee shop.

The man was charged with robbery, and the woman was released pending a court appearance in May.
