Ogden police say a bank robbery suspect was arrested early Wednesday as he attempted to ride a Las Vegas-bound bus out of St. George.

The suspect — a 5-foot-11 white male in his 30s, about 165 pounds — had entered the Wells Fargo Bank at 2389 Washington Blvd. about 4 p.m. Tuesday. He approached a teller and presented a note demanding money.

Police said the suspect did not show a weapon. He fled the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash after the teller complied.

Police Lt. Scott Conley confirmed that the 29-year-old suspect, reportedly a California man, was taken off the bus about 1 a.m. Wednesday.

St. George police had been contacted by OPD about 11:15 p.m. Tuesday with a tip that the suspect may be on a Greyhound bus en route to Las Vegas. OPD provided St. George officers with bank security camera images of the suspect, and he was quickly spotted at the Greyhound depot, along with a large amount of cash in his possession.

He was booked into Washington County Jail on suspicion of receiving stolen property with a $50,000.00 cash only bail.
