ORIGINAL STORY:

KOKOMO, Ind. – After a four-week investigation, federal authorities arrested a man accused of robbing a Kokomo bank late last month.

Mykelti Robinson, 21, Gulfport, Miss., surrendered to federal authorities in Gulfport. He faces a federal charge of bank robbery.

Indiana State Police responded to the robbery around 2 p.m. on March 29, 2016, at the Key Bank located at 1151 E. Hoffer St. in Kokomo. When state troopers arrived, the suspect was already gone and a search turned up no trace of him.

Investigators released a surveillance image of the suspect, who investigators now say is Robinson. Police said he entered the bank, displayed a handgun and demanded money. The teller complied with his request; Robinson took some cash and left, police said.
