Man wanted for bank robbery arrested in court

1:41 pm on 1 July 2009

A man wanted in connection with a bank robbery in Hamilton last week has been arrested while appearing in court on another matter.

The Kiwibank branch in Frankton was robbed last Wednesday by a man with a double-barrelled shotgun.

Police say they received a tip-off from a member of the public who recognised a photo of the man, 33.

He was located at the Hamilton District Court on Wednesday morning, while appearing on unrelated charges.

He will be back in court later charged with aggravated robbery.
