UPDATE: Three arrests in West Island bank robbery, police searching for fourth suspect

There was a bank robbery on the West Island during the noon hour on Saturday.

It happened at the TD bank at St Charles and Berry in Kirkland.

"Two suspects got inside a bank. They got away and some witnesses gave a good description of the two suspects and the getaway car. Police have located a car just blocks away from the bank", said police spokesman Dany Richer.

The thieves were armed and had help in their escape. Three suspects have been arrested.

Richer says another suspect is believed to be inside an apartment in the area and could be armed. A search will be conducted once a warrant is obtained.

An abandoned getaway vehicle had plates matching ones owned by the suspect still being sought.

No one was hurt and no shots were fired in the robbery.

How much money was taken isn't yet clear, but Richer says all of it has been recovered.

    No disrespect to the criminals, but clearly this was not a well thought out plan. The article should state that St.Charles Road is currently under construction and anyone trying to make a quick getaway may have easily gotten stuck in the huge traffic jam that now plaques st.charles road. Finally those orange cones may have actually helped as opposed to hinder.
