A former Winnipeg television news director is facing new charges in relation to a summer bank robbery in Saskatoon.
Stephen Vogelsang, 53, is alleged to have robbed the TD Canada Trust branch on 8th Street near Circle Drive on July 31.
At the time of the robbery, police said the suspect told a bank employee he had a weapon, but no weapon was seen. He eventually left the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash.
Vogelsang is already facing charges related to two bank robberies in Medicine Hat, Alta., where he’s currently being held in custody.
He’s also charged with three similar heists in Regina.
Vogelsang served as a journalism instructor at Red River College in Winnipeg from 2002 to 2011. Prior to that, he was a sports anchor and news director at CKY — which later became CTV Winnipeg.
Court documents filed in Manitoba show he was battling depression in the face of crippling debt from money-losing property sales.
He and his wife divorced in Dec. 2016, after which she alleges he forged her signature on a mortgage renewal.
Saskatoon police said it’s unclear when Vogelsang will appear in court to answer to the new charge.
