Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office deputies arrested a man after an armed robbery at the Chase Bank near St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Superior Township.

Police responded to the scene, 5485 Huron River Drive, at about 1:14 p.m., according to sheriff's spokesman Derrick Jackson.

Jackson said the man passed a note to a teller indicating he had a weapon and then left the building with an unknown amount of cash.

He was arrested moments later on Huron River Drive by responding deputies, Jackson said. All of the cash was recovered, Jackson said.

Deputies arrested a 32-year-old Ypsilanti man, according to a Nixle alert sent out by the sheriff's office. He has been lodged at the Washtenaw County Jail, the alert stated.

notice the quick response that the Washtenaw County Sheriff's provided in catching this crook--that is called being a professional police officer----the Officers were in position to be where the crook was---notice 2 robberies at a gas station and KFC and the crook gets away---difference here is that you can't catch crooks if most of your time is spent at the Firestation in the office---Pittsfield take note on being where the action is likely to occur-----stay out and about and you will be successful as well

Glad they caught the guy and everyone is safe. I work at a bank everyday and can't stand the thought of being robbed. Its a desperate world for some people I guess.
