PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Police say they ended up chasing a bank robbery suspect through northwest Portland streets and into a nearby building as cash scattered because the man left his car keys in the bank.
Police say the getaway glitch not only allowed them to arrest the man after the Monday robbery at a Wells Fargo Bank branch, it has allowed police agencies in Oregon and Washington to link him to three additional bank robberies and two motel robberies.
Sgt. Pete Simpson said Friday that 57-year-old Andrew Frank Laviguer is being held without bail on a U.S. Marshals Service arrest warrant for escape.
Simpson says the man is considered the primary suspect in an Aug. 14 Columbia Bank robbery in Portland, an Aug. 30 Key Bank robbery in King County, Wash., a Sept. 4 Sterling Savings Bank robbery in Tacoma, Wash., a Sept. 7 Super 8 motel robbery in Wilsonville, Ore., and a Sept. 8 Rodeway Inn robbery in Salem.
