Trial Date Set For Accused Bank Robber In Williams Lake

Still with the courts, a trial date has been set for a 100 Mile House man who is charged in connection with a bank robbery in Williams Lake.

40-year old Christopher Swain is due back in court on Oct. 21.

Swain, who has elected to be tried by Supreme Court Justice alone, was ordered to stand trial following a Preliminary Inquiry in December.

He’s charged with one count each of Robbery and Disguising his Face with Intent to Commit an Offence.

Williams Lake RCMP responded to a robbery in progress at the CIBC bank on Oliver Street back on Nov. 28, 2017.

Witnesses told police at the time that a man entered the bank and demanded money from the teller.

No one was hurt and a suspect was arrested without further incident.

(Editor’s Note: this story incorrectly reported the robbery incident of having occurred last year and has been updated.)
