ANN ARBOR -- A suspected bank Robber is awaiting formal charges in Ann Arbor this morning after it took four hours to secure the motel in Lansing Township where he was staying, and then take him into custody.
Cheif Kay Hoffman says Ann Arbor detectives contacted Township police and informed them the man was staying at the Marriott Courtyard on Lake Lansing Road Saturday.
Officers from a number of agencies surrounded the place, evacuated 40 guests from that section of the motel and then contacted the suspect.
A negotiator with the Ingham County Special Response team talked him into surrendering right around Midnight Saturday night.
He is suspected of robbing a 5th-3rd Bank Branch in Ann Arbor last Wednesday.
