Suspected 'The Vaulter' bank robber held

17 September 2015, 06:49

Geneva - A man suspected to be Canada's most wanted bank robber has been arrested in Geneva, police in the Swiss banking city said on Wednesday.

The man is suspected of being "The Vaulter", a robber whose trademark is to leap across bank counters and who is believed to have robbed 22 banks in Canada between 2010 and 2015.

He is wanted under an international arrest warrant requested by Canadian authorities, and the Canadian Bankers' Association has offered a C$100 000 ($76 000) reward for information leading to his arrest and conviction, Geneva police said in a statement.

They did not name the suspect, but said he was a French-American dual national born in 1962.

Police spotted him driving through Geneva on Tuesday and arrested him without incident.

They said they would begin the process of extraditing him to Canada, where he could face a life sentence.
