Accused bank robber to stand trial

A man accused of committing a pair of Okanagan bank robberies last year has been ordered to stand trial.

Trevor Allan Nilson was told his case would go to trial after his preliminary hearing—which first got underway in December—wrapped up in a Kelowna courtroom on Friday.

Evidence presented at that hearing is subject to a publication ban.

Nilson faces charges in connection with the Feb. 16, 2010 robbery at the Toronto Dominion Bank in Penticton and a robbery at the CIBC on Pandosy Street in Kelowna  a few weeks later.

In the Kelowna incident, a man demanded money from a teller during the noon hour on March 1, 2010 and left the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Nilsson is scheduled to return to court on March 21 to set trial dates.
