Castle Shannon Police report the arrest of a Bank Robbery suspect.
The Dollar Bank 400 Mt Lebanon Blvd was robbed on Wednesday 11-16-16 at 2:40pm.

The white male actor generally fit the description of previous suspect(s) in robberies at this location on October 13, 2016 and November 10, 2016.
The actor in today’s incident was wearing a mask, gray hooded sweatshirt and blue gloves.
In all three incidents, the suspect walked into the bank at a brisk pace, went straight to the teller windows and jumped the counter. He then took cash from teller drawers and fled on foot.
In the second incident, a vehicle description was obtained for the getaway car as a white four door sedan GM product mid 90’s model.
The Officers in today’s incident broadcast a suspect description, as well as the vehicle description from the previous incident.
Officers from Bethel Park spotted the suspect vehicle within minutes of the broadcast and gave chase. The vehicle identifiers led officers to develop a suspect description, and the actor was located nearby and captured by Bethel Park Police.
Allegheny County Police and the FBI are assisting in the investigation as well.
Preliminary indications are that the suspect is responsible for at least these three incidents.
The investigation is continuing.
