ST. GEORGE Police arrested a Mesquite, Nev., man in connection with a bank robbery here.
Police said a man walked into a U.S. Bank at 791 S. Bluff St. this morning and handed a teller a note demanding money. The note also claimed the suspect had a weapon, but police said one was not shown.
The bank employee handed over the cash. A customer gave police a car description, including a license plate. As it was being broadcast over police radios, authorities said an off-duty St. George police officer spotted the car on I-15.
Police said Ricky Gedrites, 53, was booked into the Purgatory Jail on investigation of aggravated robbery.
