The Abbotsford Police Department is also asking for the public’s help in locating Bradwell, who has been identified as the suspect in a July 2 robbery.

Sgt. Judy Bird of the Abbotsford Police Department said the robbery took place on July 2 at around noon, when a man entered the HSBC on South Fraser Way and provided a note demanding money to the bank teller.

Bird said no weapon was used during the robbery, and the man obtained an undisclosed amount of cash before fleeing to a waiting taxi.

On the afternoon of July 9, a man entered the Sidney bank and produced a note demanding cash be handed over.

After receiving the money, the man left the bank and took off northbound on Fifth Street. Despite a quick response from Sidney North Saanich RCMP, the suspect was not located.

Bradwell is described as six feet tall and 185 pounds with short brown hair, blue eyes and a tattoo of “Bradwell” on his right forearm.

According to the provincial court database, Bradwell has prior convictions for theft, using an imitation firearm, break-and-enter and two counts of robbery in North Vancouver.

He also has convictions for robbery, fleeing from a peace officer and two counts of breaching his bail conditions in Merritt.
