The suspect wanted in connection with a robbery at Newton’s First Bank south branch has been apprehended. The robbery occurred Monday evening around 5:45 p.m.
Martin L. Paris, 50, was arrested Thursday night in Seiling, Oklahoma, in the northwest part of the state.
A tip from someone who recognized Paris from media coverage led police to the motel where he was staying. He was taken into custody without incident.
On Monday, police said Paris left the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash. No weapon was displayed.
Paris is now being held at the Dewey County Jail. He had been on federal probation in Oklahoma for previous bank robberies.
