New Westminster man charged in failed robbery

A New Westminster man has been charged with trying to rob a bank and stealing a taxi as a getaway car.

Police say a man entered a financial institution in the 500 block of Sixth Street with a note demanding cash on the evening of March 8. The suspect didn't show a weapon and after a while fled without any money before taking a taxi which was found a little while later abandoned in Burnaby.

An investigation identified a suspect who was arrested the next day.

Michael Ross Ogden, 33, has been charged with three counts of robbery and is being held in custody until his next court appearance March 21.
