Police have identified a second suspect in Thursday’s armed robbery at the Third Avenue branch of the Bank of Montreal.
But as of Friday evening, they had not managed to locate Richard Racine Millidge, a federal parolee apparently wanted on 18 other counts of armed robbery.
Police responded Thursday afternoon after receiving a report of two males entering the bank and producing a note that allegedly suggested they had a weapon. The bank teller handed over a small amount of cash and the pair fled.
Police, with the help of dogs and an RCMP helicopter, tracked two suspects across the CN Rail yard, where the first suspect was apprehended. The second suspect was tracked into the industrial yard nearby, but disappeared before police could locate him.
Stephen James Hogue, 35, now faces charges of armed robbery and possession of stolen property.
Millidge, also 35, is a federal parolee wanted, according to police “on a suspension of parole warrant for 18 counts of armed robbery and should be considered violent.”
He is described as 5’8″ tall and weighing 150 lbs. He has blue eyes and has recently shaved his head.
Anyone with information on Millidge is asked to contact the RCMP.
