Attempted South Hill bank robbery leads to arrest

Spokane police arrested a man allegedly attempting to rob a Wells Fargo bank on the South Hill just four minutes after the bank’s alarm sounded. Police responded and arrested Jared Bestrom, 37 at 10:06 a.m. after a police officer observed him walking near the bank with cash falling out of his pockets. Spokeswoman Officer Teresa Fuller said he handed a robbery note to a teller at the bank at 2910 E. 30th. He did not have a weapon. Bestrom was booked into jail on investigation of first-degree robbery. He will appear in court tomorrow at 1:30 p.m.
