NPD officers nab, arrest Huntington bank robber this morning

We just received the following press release from Lt. Williams:

Today at 9:44 a.m., The Huntington Bank in Rookwood Pavilion was robbed. The suspect entered the bank and passed a note to the teller demanding money and provided her with a sandwich baggie to put the money in. The teller put the money in the baggie and the suspect fled the scene. After a description was put out on the suspect, Norwood Officer Tim Brown, spotted a subject matching that description walking on Smith Rd and followed him to an address on Duck Creek Rd, not far from the scene of the robbery. Officers followed up there and arrested Matthew Easter M/W, 31 for Aggravated Robbery. Easter was cooperative and admitted to the crime to investigators.
