Authorities arrested Lapeer bank robbery suspect

(LAPEER COUNTY) -- Authorities in Lapeer County are investigating a bank robbery reported Thursday afternoon just before 3 p.m. at the Lapeer County Bank and Trust Elba Branch in Lapeer. Deputies say the suspect entered the bank wearing a black ski mask and white painter style suit. There were no customers inside and none of the employees were injured after the suspect brandished a weapon. The suspect got away with an undisclosed amount of cash and fled north on a snowmobile. The snowmobile was later located in a rural area about four miles from the bank. Deputies say the machine had been reported stolen earlier in the day from Davison in Genesee County. The suspect was located shortly after 5 p.m. in Davison and arrested for his alleged role in the robbery. Formal charges are expected Friday.
