Kootenai County Sheriff’s deputies were called to a U.S. Bank branch in the 6300 block of North Government way for a robbery in progress just before 4 p.m. Thursday. Two nearby deputies saw a man walking down the street and stopped him. The man matched the description given of the robber, according to a Sheriff’s Department news release. The robber reportedly gave a teller a note that said he had a gun and demanded money. No gun was displayed. Deputies arrested Timothy A. Vincent, 49, on suspicion of bank robbery/Nina Culver, SR.
