Kingston police say Cory Stevenhaagen turned himself in Tuesday morning.

Original story:

A bench warrant has been issued for the arrest of a man accused of robbing a Kingston bank more than 15 years ago.

Kingston police are on the lookout for 42-year-old Cory James Stevenhaagen, who was arrested in May 2019 for a robbery at a Kingston Scotiabank back in 2003.

On May 28, 2003, police say, a man entered a midtown Scotiabank on Princess Street and demanded cash from the teller.

The teller handed the man money, which included a red dye pack. The man then fled from the bank.

For over a decade, Kingston police say they received several tips that finally led to the arrest of a man on May 29, 2019. He was then released on bail.

In 2019, Det. Sgt. Jay Finn said the man was not held in custody after his arrest because he was at a different stage in his life, was gainfully employed and co-operated during his arrest.

But on March 6, Stevenhaagen was scheduled for a court appearance and did not appear when his name was called.

Kingston police are asking for the public’s assistance to help find him.

Stevenhaagen is described as a Caucasian male, six-feet-two-inches tall and weighing 181 pounds. He has blue eyes and a shaved head, but if grown out, his hair colour would be brown.
