Grand Forks bank robbery trial set for August 2024

A man accused of holding up the CIBC in Grand Forks in April 2022 won’t stand trial for another year.

Briaden Rosch’s case will finally get underway in Rossland Supreme Court on Aug. 19, 2024.
The date was fixed on Tuesday, although the reason for the delay wasn’t immediately clear.

Rosch is accused of robbery and auto theft in the Grand Forks hold-up. The same file includes eight other charges, mostly weapons-related, from Creston.

At the time of the robbery, 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.

Similar robberies previously occurred at the CIBC in Creston and CIBC in Castlegar but no one has been charged with those crimes.
