Robber is caught fleeing from bank
WCCO.com reports Wednesday police were out to enfore the Move Over Law which requires drivers to make way for squad cars on the side of the road or at least slow down if they can't.
During their stakeout, police received a call about a bank robbery at a New Market Bank in Lakeville. Right as police were getting the description of the vehicle, the car drove by more than a dozen officers on the sting operation. The driver, a 47-year-old Buffalo, Minn. man is now in custody following the robbery.
The StarTribune reports, the Buffalo man allegedly had held up six banks prior to the one he robbed in Lakeville.
"We've had quite a run in the last eight days," said FBI Special Agent Paul McCabe. "But overall, this has been kind of a normal year" for this type of activity.
Federal bank charges could be filed as early as the next day. If the man is convicted, he could face up to 20 years in prison.
