Suspect Caught in Bank Robbery

By  | 

Quick action and a hot foot chase by Reno police landed a bank robbery suspect in custody Wednesday morning.

The Colonial Bank on Longley Lane was robbed at around ten Wednesday morning. Police responding to the call spotted a man who fit the description of the suspect walking down the street.

The suspect, identified as 21-year old Matthew Hearn, took off running and officers chased him on foot. Hearn was found hiding in some bushes on Snowshoe Lane, just a short distance away from the bank.

Ironically, this same bank was robbed just a few months ago in April.
