Bank Robbery Suspect In Custody

"A call came into us very quickly and there were already police cars in the area and they were able to apprehend the offender," said Lt. Gary Stevens with the Lubbock Police.

It started just before Noon at the Plains Capital Bank at 15th and Avenue J. The suspect handed the teller a note, took an undisclosed amount of money and ran.

"The original call came into use at 11:44 a.m. The alarm came in at 11:46 a.m. Our officers were on the scene by 11:48 a.m. and the suspect was in custody by 11:50 a.m.," said Stevens.

Six minutes and just a few blocks away at 16th and Avenue O, Lubbock Police arrested 30-year-old Michael Paul Harris.

"This is a serious call and it's a priority call that will be handled before any other calls in the city. So it's going to get more officers assigned to it and in the proximity to the police department several officers could get here rather quickly," added Stevens.

Harris used no weapon in this crime.
