From Richmond Times-Dispatch:
RICHMOND, Va. –
Richmond police made a quick arrest following the robbery of a downtown bank branch late this morning.
Officers were called to the SunTrust branch in the 400 block of East Grace Street at 11:13 a.m. for a report of a robbery. Employees told police a white man wearing green sweat pants had robbed the bank by passing a note to a teller saying he had a weapon, although none was displayed.
A number of officers were in the neighborhood and began looking in the immediate area of the bank, and by 11:20 a.m., an officer on Grace between Sixth and Seventh streets had detained a suspect matching the description of the robber. The officer held the suspect until a bank employee came by and positively identified the man as the robber.
The suspect, who was taken into custody, was not immediately identified while police continued their investigation.
The department later said 4th Precinct officer Ramona Norwood set the speedy arrest in motion by quickly relaying the suspect’s description to the department’s communications center. Once the description was broadcast over the radio, officers Matthew McHugh and Jason Kuti saw the suspect and took him into custody.
