He was dubbed the “Pleather Bandit” because of his apparently fake leather jacket. Earlier this week Toronto Police held a news conference releasing photos of various men wanted in 10 of the 12 unsolved bank robberies this year.
In the case of the “Pleather Bandit” police say a man walked into the Bank of Montreal at King Street West and Dufferin on March 11th at around 4:10p.m. He handed the teller a note stating he had a gun and demanded cash.
On Wednesday police received a tip from the public and arrested and charged 51-year-old Gustav Khan of Toronto. He is charged with one count of robbery.
Investigators are still searching for three other men wanted in connection with robberies throughout the city.
