Video helps identify Spokane Valley robbery suspect


A robbery suspect was arrested on Monday less than 90 minutes after police say he stole money from a bank at gunpoint.

Police reviewing surveillance footage from Washington Trust bank at 301 N. Argonne Road recognized Jesse R. Adams, 43, from a domestic incident investigation on April 14, according to a news release.

Adams was arrested after Officers Chan Erdman and Brett Hubbell spotted him walking through the parking lot at his apartment complex, 10101 E. Main Ave.

Police say Adams had a handgun when he walked into the bank at 4:30 p.m., handed a teller a bag, then left with cash.

Adams was booked into jail on a first-degree robbery charge. Investigators recovered the stolen money, the suspect’s clothing and the weapon used in the robbery, according to a news release.

Police say the robbery is not related to a robbery that occurred at 6 p.m. Monday at Chase Bank, 2215 W. Northwest Blvd.
