‘Surgical mask bandit’ court proceedings delayed

Court proceedings for a White Rock man accused of committing 12 ATM robberies are now set to get underway next year.

Court proceedings for a White Rock man accused of committing 12 ATM robberies are now set to get underway next year.

A four-day preliminary inquiry in the case against Travis Jensen-Pickford was originally scheduled for November, however, court records indicate that proceeding will now take place April 8-11, 2014.

Jensen-Pickford, 23, was arrested on June 15 and is facing 36 charges in connection with robberies that occurred in White Rock and Surrey between May 12 and the day of his arrest. All but two of the crimes took place on the Semiahmoo Peninsula. One occurred in Newton and another near 186 Street and Fraser Highway.

In each instance, a victim was approached by a masked man while withdrawing money from an ATM during non-banking hours. The robber’s unusual choice of disguise led to police referring to the man as the “surgical mask bandit.”

Jensen-Pickford elected in July to be tried on the charges by a Supreme Court judge and jury.
