Chilliwack Mounties believe they have solved two unrelated robberies earlier this month.
Mickael Daniel Kaigle has been charged with robbing a Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce branch on Aug. 6.
In that case, Mounties say a man walked into the Young Road bank, handed a clark a note, and left with money.
Patrols of the area didn't turn up a suspect, but Mounties say they subsequently located "forensic evidence" that led to Kaigle's arrest a couple of days later.
Kaigle, a 24-year-old Chilliwack man, has since been released on bail.
And Mounties have charged Joseph Kyle Adams in connection with a late-night robbery of a Tim Horton's Aug. 13 just before midnight.
Police say a man entered the store, asked for money and left.
Mounties were called, made patrols of the area, and later arrested Adams, a 23-year-old Hope resident.
Adams was also charged for failing to comply with a previous court order. he has been remanded in custody, police say.
“Both incidents reflect the diligent work of both our uniform and plainclothes members, and of our specialized Forensic Identification Section, in solving these crimes” RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Len vanNieuwenhuizen said.
