An off-duty RCMP officer apparently foiled an attempted bank robbery in Red Deer on Thursday.
Police said they responded about 2 p.m. to a call of a suspicious man at the Scotiabank at Gaetz Avenue and 67th Street.
It turns out an off-duty officer was in the bank at the time and detained a suspect, who was taken into custody.
There were no weapons involved in the incident. No one was injured and no money was taken.
Charges are pending.
