WICHITA, Kan. — Police have arrested a 25-year-old man suspected of robbing a northwest Wichita bank Thursday afternoon.
The Bank of America branch located at 21st and Ridge was robbed shortly before 4 p.m. Thursday. Officials say he gave the teller a note saying to put the money in his bag. The note ended with, “thxs and plz.” He took the money and left the bank.
No one was hurt.
Less than an hour after the robbery, police released a surveillance photo of the suspect. Police reports show that the suspect was brought back to the bank a short time later after he was seen on TV by a relative.
The suspect is 25-year-old Matthew W. Greenlee of Lawrence. The suspect does not have prior convictions and was enrolled at the University of Kansas last semester. He was charged Friday with one county of bank robbery.
If convicted, he faces a maximum penalty of 20 years and a fine up to $250,000.
On April 18, 2012, a bank robbery occurred at the same branch. No one has been arrested for that robbery.
