The FBI has arrested a man suspected of robbing several banks in multiple states, including Monday afternoon in Preston, Idaho.
According to a press release from the Preston City Police Department, 20-year-old Dakota Walker was arrested Tuesday afternoon outside his residence in Ogden, Utah.
Walker is suspected of entering the Wells Fargo Bank Monday afternoon and handing a teller a note demanding money. He was wearing a black hoody and left with an undisclosed amount of cash after the teller complied.
He was seen driving away in a white sedan with Utah license plates.
Officers believe Walker earlier walked into the US Bank in Preston and inquired about a bank account. He left there without incident.
Agents with the FBI’s Northern Utah Criminal Apprehension Team (NUCAT) and officers from the Ogden Police Department made the arrest around 2 p.m. Walker was taken into custody without incident. Federal charges are pending an investigation.
The press release said FBI agents appreciated the Preston City Police Department and Oneida County Sheriff’s Office for their efforts in the case.
