Suspect in three robberies arrested and charged

Adam John Taylor is accused of robbery spree on Tuesday, Nov. 10 in Abbotsford

Police released these images last week of a man believed to be a suspect in three robberies in Abbotsford that occurred in a 10-hour period on Tuesday

A suspect in three robberies that occurred last Tuesday within 10 hours has been arrested by the Abbotsford Police Department.

Adam John Taylor, 27, was arrested Thursday at 4:45 p.m. and has been charged with three counts of robbery and one count of assault with a weapon.

The three robberies took place Nov. 10 at 2:15 p.m. at a business in the 2600 block of Gladys Avenue, at 4:30 p.m. at a restaurant in the 31200 block of Maclure Road and that evening at a restaurant in the 31900 block of South Fraser Way.

In one of the incidents, the suspect deployed some bear spray.

The man wore a mask during all three robberies, but police released a photo –  obtained from video footage – of the man they believed to be the suspect and who was believed to have entered one of the businesses the day before the robbery.

The link was made because of a distinctive tattoo on the back of the man’s neck.

The major crime unit of the Abbotsford Police Department is continuing its investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call them at 604-859-5225, text abbypd (222973) or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
