SPOKANE, Wash. - A suspect described by police as being cool and collected while robbing a Banner Bank inside a Northeast Spokane Safeway Monday evening has been arrested.

The robbery happened just before 5:30 p.m. at a Banner Bank located inside the Safeway near Hamilton and Mission.

Police say 34-year-old Douglas Labish was calm as he handed a teller a note demanding money and stating he was armed. After one teller was unable to give him cash, he approached another employee who gave him an undisclosed amount of money. He then fled the scene.

Thursday, just before 4 p.m., employees at the Banner Bank inside the Safeway on North Market called police after noticing a man, who matched a description from Monday's robbery, pacing back and forth in front of the store.

Police arrived on scene a short time later and took Labish into custody on robbery charges.
