A man suspected by authorities of robbing a Pell lake bank on Tuesday was arrested in Twin Lakes today.

According to a Twin Lakes Police Department press release:

On Tuesday, Aug. 31, at 10:25 a.m., a white male, wearing a hockey mask and armed with a handgun robbed the First Banking Center in Pell Lake obtaining an unclosed amount of currency.

On Thursday, Sept. 1, 2010, the Town of Bloomfield Police Department advised the Twin Lakes Police Department that a felony warrant for armed robbery related to the First Banking Center in Pell Lake, had been issued for a Twin Lakes resident whose last known address was in the 400 block of Upper Horse Shoe Drive in Twin Lakes. The house was checked numerous times by officers with negative results.

On Saturday, Sept. 4, 2010 at approximately 12:30 as.m., third shift officers of the Twin Lakes Police Department developed reliable information that the suspect for the Pell Lake Center robbery may be staying at a house in the 1400 block of Oak Street in Twin Lakes. Officers immediately put surveillance on the house and called the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department for assistance.

Officers received permission from the female resident to search the residence. The 23-year-old male suspect was found by officers concealed in a bedroom floor crawl space.

The suspect was taken into custody without incident and was turned over to the Bloomfield Police Department for further investigation.

“The combined efforts of the Twin Lakes Police, the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department and the Town of Bloomfield Police Department allowed this situation to come to a successful conclusion without incident or injury to citizens and officers involved,” said Twin Lakes police Chief Dale Racer.
