Tips from social media users led police to the arrest of a suspect in a bank robbery that occurred in Yelm over the weekend.
Police say the suspect robbed the America’s Credit Union branch inside Wal-Mart on Saturday morning and got away with an unspecified amount of money. Police then posted a photo of the suspect from surveillance video on social media and heard from people who recognized the man as a regular at an establishment in Spanaway.
The 56-year-old man was arrested in Spanaway without incident Tuesday morning. Yelm Police Chief Todd Stancil said the man has no criminal record.
