CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Authorities have arrested a 56-year-old man in connection with a bank robbery in Lincoln County.

The Wyoming Highway Patrol says the First National Bank in Afton was robbed late Monday afternoon and the suspect was caught without incident about 20 minutes later.

The patrol says the suspect entered the bank, demanded money and then left with an undisclosed amount of cash in a red Toyota pickup. Within minutes of the report a patrol trooper caught up to the red pickup and waited for backup officers to arrive.

The suspect’s vehicle was stopped about 15 miles south of Afton and the arrested made.

The patrol says officers recovered money that had been taken during the robbery as well as other items involved in the robbery.
