Forensics work helps bring charges

We’ve been hearing how local police forensics work helped tie convicted armed robber Andrew Stevenson to his spree of crimes.

Stevenson was arrested after robbing the Nelson Credit Union, but only now can we say how police linked the heavily disguised criminal to last year’s other hold-ups.

RCMP linked the same shoe tread prints found at the scene of two robberies in Castlegar .

Nelson police then took an impression of a mark made with the butt of a shotgun on a door in the first of the two Nelson heists.
