At approximately 4:23 p.m. the suspect entered the Wachovia Bank, presented the teller a demand note and implied that he had a weapon. After receiving an undisclosed amount of currency, the suspect fled the bank on foot. He was observed by witnesses getting onto a Hartline Bus. Once inside the bus, the suspect began passing out cash to individuals that were on the bus (unknown number of riders). Deputies made contact with the Hartline bus driver and using the excuse of mechanic problems with the bus, the driver stopped the bus in the area of 19th and Fletcher. The driver had all of the riders exit the bus. Once the suspect exited, he was taken into custody without incident. Deputies were able to recover money from the riders on the bus that remained at the scene and also from the suspect that still had money concealed inside his pants.
