A man accused of holding up the CIBC in Grand Forks last year has waived his right to a preliminary hearing and will head directly to trial.
Briaden Rosch’s trial date is expected to be fixed in Rossland Supreme Court on March 27.
He is charged with robbery and auto theft in the Grand Forks hold-up. The same file includes eight other charges, mostly weapons-related, from Creston.
The bank robbery took place on April 21. At the time police said a suspect wearing a hoodie and his face covered approached the teller. The man threatened that he had a gun and demanded money. He ran off with a large amount of money.
Rosch was arrested in Creston nine days later.
