Butte County authorities believe they have arrested a man who robbed the Tri-Counties Bank in Durham Friday afternoon.
California Highway Patrol officers and Butte County sheriff's deputies responded to reports of an armed robbery at the Tri-Counties Bank, 9411 Midway, around 3:30 p.m.
Witnesses told Action News Now the suspect entered the bank wearing a ski mask and appeared to be armed with a handgun. The suspect exited the building through the back and was apprehended by authorities just a few minutes later. Authorities say they have recovered a weapon and bag of cash.
The same bank was robbed less than two months ago by a suspect the FBI has linked to several other North State robberies. At this time it is unclear if the robberies are connected.
