Bank robbery suspect quickly arrested in Kootenai County

A bank robbery suspect was captured and arrested as he reportedly fled the scene Thursday in North Idaho.

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.
