A "person of interest" in the robbery of the Cache Valley Bank in St. George has been arrested in California.
St. George Police Capt. Kyle Whitehead said Tuesday that James Ellison McKibbin, 41, was nabbed in San Fernando on Monday.
Whitehead said the FBI, which was involved in the St. George bank robbery case from the beginning, would be handling the case in California. It was uncertain when or if extradition would be sought by Utah officials, given McKibbin's possible connection to other past bank robberies.
The St. George robbery occurred just after noon on Oct. 5 when a man gave a note demanding money to a teller while implying he had a weapon. The teller complied and the robber fled the bank on foot.
