A bank robber is still on the lam after making off with an undisclosed sum of cash from a Port Moody bank.

At approximately 11:30 a.m. Monday, a man entered the Bank of Nova Scotia on St. Johns Street and passed a note demanding money from a startled teller, Port Moody police said.

The bank employee complied, handing over a sum of money, and the suspect fled with the cash.

Port Moody police responded immediately to the area but were unable to find the suspect or the money.

Police remained on scene Monday to gather forensic and video evidence.

Police described the wanted man on Wednesday as white, with a slim build, standing approximately 5' 10" tall and sporting a teardrop tattoo under his left eye.

The suspect was wearing a black hooded sweater and black pants at the time of the robbery.

The Port Moody Police Department is asking anyone with information about the robbery to call them at 604-461-3456 or call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS.
