Video from a Madison Metro bus helped police track down a suspected bank robber this week, police said.
Madison police said surveillance video clips helped lead detectives to a suspect Thursday afternoon.
Madison police said a man held up the Associated Bank at 1574 W. Broadway at 9:06 a.m. Wednesday. The robber kept a hand in a pocket during the crime, making it look like he might have a gun. He demanded and received cash, then left on foot.
Bank cameras recorded images of the man, and officers were given a good description of a getaway car. A Madison Metro bus was in the area of the robbery and recorded images of the car. Detectives were also able to glean images from an area business and from an apartment building parking lot. The multiple surveillance video sources help investigators identify the getaway car and a suspect. Police said the suspected robber, 27-year-old Blake A. Bradley, lived near the bank.
Bradley was arrested without incident Thursday, according to the report.
Police said some of the stolen money was recovered.
