Man arrested after police find fishing line hanging out of night deposit box at Ann Arbor bank
A 26-year-old Ypsilanti man was arrested this morning after Ann Arbor police responded to an alarm at a South State Street bank and found him hiding near a night deposit box that had fishing line hanging out of it, police said.
The alarm call from Michigan Commerce Bank came in at 4:16 a.m., and officers were on the scene within three minutes, police spokeswoman Lt. Renee Bush said.
Bush declined to be more specific about where the man was hiding. Bush said it appeared he was trying to get money out of the night deposit box using the fishing line.
It's unclear whether the incident is linked to several similar incidents in recent months, including one in May at a bank in the 100 block of North Maple Road, Bush said.
The man is at the Washtenaw County Jail, where he is expected to be arraigned on criminal charges Thursday, Bush said.
