Fourth ATM robbery; police describe suspects and ask for public assistance

The RCMP investigation into local ATM thefts (incluing one in Castlegar, see Local banks targeted) has a new twist, as a fourth offence has now been committed, and police are releasing descriptions of suspects. 

The fourth robbery took place Sept. 12 at about 4:30 a.m. at the Kootenay Savings Credit Union at the Waneta Mall in Trail.<--break->
Police are seeking public assistance in finding two suspects and a vehicle, described as follows:
  1. Caucasian male, 25 to 35 years old, about six feet tall and slim, with short dark hair and a receding hairline. He was wearing a black, long-sleeved Hurley shirt, blue jeans, dark shoes, and possibly sunglasses.
  2. Caucasian male, also 25 to 35 years old, about 5' 10”, with a stocky build, a bit of a belly, short dark hair and a similarly receding hairline. He was wearing a black, short-sleeved shirt with a white logo on the shoulder, dark-coloured pants, white shoes and also, possibly, sunglasses.
The vehicle being sought is a silver, four-door, full-sized sedan with untinted windows. The make of the car is likely foreign, perhaps a Mercedes or Hyundai. The car may also have lower profile tires and silver rims.
“Police are also asking the public to report to police any suspicious persons, vehicles or activities around banks, financial institutions or businesses where ATMs are located,” said RCMP Staff Sgt. Dan Seibel.
