MARYSVILLE, Washington — Police in Marysville, Washington, say a man arrested after a Friday evening bank robbery was just 100 yards from the bank when a police K-9 found him hiding in some bushes.

Cmdr. Robb Lamoureux says police were able to respond quickly because of a 911 hang-up call made by a Home Street Bank employee while the robber was still in the bank.

The police spokesman says the robber pointed a handgun at a bank employee, demanded money and fled.

Police arrested a 22-year-old Texas man who was found with a handgun and a large amount of money. Lamoureux did not identify him but said he was sought on a felony robbery warrant out of Texas. He was being booked into jail for investigation of first-degree robbery.

Monroe police provided the K-9.
