Investigators with the York Regional Police Hold-Up Unit arrested a man suspected of robbing the CIBC bank in Nobleton.
Police report that on Thursday, April 9, shortly after 3 p.m., officers responded to the bank robbery on Highway 27 south of King Road. It is believed that a male suspect entered the bank, approached one of the tellers and made a demand for money. The teller complied and the suspect took a quantity of money, placed it into a plastic bag and left the bank. The suspect fled on foot south of the building towards a parking lot. No one was injured as a result of the incident.
The suspect was identified as 31-year-old Byron Cambridge. Police found him the following day, on Friday, April 10, at a casino in the community of Rama, where he was placed under arrest without incident.

He appeared in court April 13.
Police are still looking for witnesses.
