CALGARY — Calgary police are investigating a bank robbery gone awry.
Police say that Tuesday morning, a man walked into a CIBC branch downtown and threatened a security guard with a knife.
He then proceeded to the wicket area where he robbed two bank tellers of an undisclosed amount of money.
But as the man left the bank and started running toward a waiting vehicle, the dye packs attached to the money went off, causing him to drop his knife and a portion of the cash.
Witness statements led police to the abandoned vehicle a short time later, and dog teams were able to track down a suspect.
A man has been taken into custody and charges are pending.
